Deputies arrested in off-duty shooting near park in La Mirada
Three Los Angeles County deputies were relieved of duty, and two of them were arrested following anoff-duty shooting incident near La Mirada Regional Park, authorities said Friday night.
Judith Gonzalez, 36, was arrested on suspicion of felony assault with a deadly weapon. Adrienne Myers, 35, was arrested on suspicion of felony battery. The third deputy, who was not arrested, was not identified.
No one was hit by gunfire in the early Friday incident, but one of the three deputies was treated and released for injuries at a hospital. The name of that deputy was not released.
Deputy Pete Gomez of the sheriff's media bureau said he could not say what happened at the park during the predawn incident, but that brandishing or pointing a gun could be charged as an assault.
"I don't know if there was an argument, I don't know if there was a fight. I do know this will be thoroughly investigated," he said.
Bail was set at $50,000 for each deputy arrested.
