Official Questions Media Accuracy On Glendale Police Charges

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Police officers in Glendale said on Tuesday they have no comment about reports that more officers have been placed on administrative leave for alleged misconduct.

KNX 1070’s Ed Mertz reports a police spokesman says that while discussing the allegations would still be premature, the news media may not have all its facts straight.

The comments come on the heels of a Los Angeles Times article that reports two additional Glendale police officers are on leave — one for sexual solicitation and the other for creating a hostile work environment.

In all, eight officers are on leave for a variety of alleged incidents, including the use of a police vehicle for a road trip to Las Vegas.
