LA MIRADA (CBS) — Two female Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies were arrested Friday for fighting each other in the area of La Mirada Regional Park.
A third deputy was treated for unspecified injuries at a hospital and released, said sheriff’s Capt. Mike Parker.
One of the deputies was also accused of firing her weapon during the brawl.
No one was hit by the gunfire, and investigators believe the three deputies were the only people involved in the incident, Parker said.
Deputy Judith Gonzalez, 36, was booked for assault with a deadly weapon.
Deputy Adrienne Myers, 35, was booked for battery. Bail was set at $50,000 for each of them.
Gonzalez, Myers and the injured deputy were “relieved of duty,” Parker said.
“All three deputies were assigned to patrol stations,” Parker said.
Deputies were sent to the park in the 13700 block of Adelfa Drive at 3:04 a.m. in response to reports of gunfire, said Deputy Guillermina Saldana of the Sheriff’s Headquarters Bureau.
An investigation into the incident was ongoing.
