LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Los Angeles police sergeant has been convicted of harassing an ex-girlfriend with threatening phone calls and text messages.

Joshua Chong was sentenced Thursday to three years informal probation after making a plea deal with Orange County prosecutors. He was also ordered to serve community service and enroll in a treatment program for batterers.

Prosecutors said Chong made numerous harassing calls and text messages to his ex-girlfriend last October and threatened that he would kill her and a male friend of hers.

His ex-girlfriend reported the threats to Fullerton police, who arrested Chong.

The LAPD said Thursday that Chong has been relieved of duty and is on leave without pay.
