A 30-year veteran law enforcement officer of Orange County is accused of targeting a man, with a past sex offense, for the previous two years. The registrant has a history of arrests for impersonating a police officer.
The LE was informed in late 2020 that the investigation into the registrant for any wrongdoing was going to be closed.
In March of 2021, the LE arrested the registrant for carrying a pepper ball weapon that was in plain view and not concealed in his car. An internal investigation found that the registrant should NOT have been arrested, and the officer has been fired.
