Inspector general reviews LAPD arrestee injury
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Police Commission’s inspector general is investigating the case of a woman who says she was somehow ejected from a moving police car while handcuffed.
Inspector General Alex Bustamante said at Tuesday’s Police Commission meeting that his office is reviewing surveillance video and reports on the case and will report findings to the civilian oversight board.
The 28-year-old woman, Kim Nguyen, has filed a lawsuit against the department. She was arrested by police on March 17 for public intoxication, handcuffed and put in the car.
Nguyen says she was thrown from the car but doesn’t remember how it happened. The LAPD has had an ongoing personnel complaint investigation since March 18.
