A two decade veteran of the LAPD has recently been arrested on charges for a fraud charge relating to a drug crime. The officer has since been accused of “doctor shopping” and otherwise using fraudulent means to illegally procure prescription drugs.
Currently, the officer has nine charges that he is facing and is being held on $20,000 bail. He has also been placed on administrative leave. Reports claim that he surrendered without a fight to agents from various agencies and departments.
