LOS ANGELES (AP) — A staffer in Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s office has been arrested on suspicion of attacking police officers at a Los Angeles nightclub.

Blanca Martinez-Navarro on Leave in Wake of Alleged Fight with Police, KNX 1070’s Bill Cooper Reports

Police Lt. Jim Gavin says Blanca Martinez-Navarro, a program manager for the major’s gang reduction and youth development office, was booked Sunday for battery on a peace officer along with her husband Oscar Navarro.

Gavin says police received a call about a domestic disturbance at the downtown club the Conga Room. He says the husband attacked officers when they arrived, and Martinez-Navarro jumped on the back of one of the officers and began hitting him as they took her husband into custody.

She was released after posting $20,000 bail.

Villaraigosa Chief of Staff Jeff Carr tells the Los Angeles Times Martinez-Navarro was put on administrative leave, but had no further comment.

    Alice: You have no idea what you are talking about. It’s the gangsters he hires to run these programs. They claim to be “reformed”. A gangster is always a gangster. They have been arrested over and over in Los Angeles for incidents like this and worse.

      Well, he DID promise to “watch their backs” if he got voted in, (handshake, fist-bump) ‘member Antonio? Why get a college edumacation when you can get on the payroll right out of jail and the streets?

    No wonder these programs never work. Look at the people the mayor hires. Gang mentality staffers running anti-gang programs.

  • Mariscal

    I’m interested in knowing what her job description is, what her duties and responsibilities are and what her qualifications for this position are. I’d also like to know how long she has been in this position and what she is currently paid and whether she is effective at what she is supposed to do there.

  • pmoore

    This city is being poorly run. They will get a lawyer and taxpayers will pay. This mayor has to be voted out.
