Retired LASD Chief Files Latest Retaliation Suit Over Alleged Inmate Beating


A retired Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department chief Monday sued the county and Sheriff Alex Villanueva, the latest of several department members to claim Villanueva directed a coverup of a video of a deputy with his knee on the head of a man in custody for three minutes.

Plaintiff LaJuana Haselrig was often seen standing next to Villanueva during news conferences, but her Los Angeles Superior Court lawsuit alleges whistleblower retaliation, racial discrimination, failure to take all steps to prevent discrimination, intentional infliction of emotional distress, defamation and violations of the Public Safety Officers Procedural Bill of Rights.

Haselrig seeks at least $5 million in damages. Also named as defendants are Cmdr. John Satterfield and Deputy David Yoo.
