His arrest comes after an internal affairs investigation into Castillo after reviewing his DUI arrests from October 2019, which investigators say showed inconsistencies between the body-worn camera footage and the written report. No further details were immediately available about the incident.

LAPD Chief Michel Moore said the following in a statement:

“The allegations of an officer falsifying a police report are extremely troubling and there must be accountability. This Department is fully cooperating with the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office in this matter.”

The DUI charge ended up not being filed against the suspect as a result of the internal affairs investigation.

Castillo was booked in Metropolitan Detention Center and released on bond.
