An off-duty Los Angeles Police Department officer arrested in Inglewood on suspicion of kidnapping, making criminal threats and assault with a deadly weapon was behind bars Tuesday in lieu of $2 million bail.
Details were sketchy as the LAPD acknowledged the arrest but referred questions to Inglewood police who made the arrest. However, Inglewood police would only provide limited information.
The Los Angeles Times reported that Nicolas Enmanuel QuintanillaBorja, 29, was arrested after Inglewood police officers were sent to the 3500 block of West 116th Street at about 5:50 a.m. Friday on a family disturbance call and conducted witness interviews at the scene.
An LAPD representative did confirm that the officer’s police powers were revoked following his arrest, though he is still employed by the department, and said that an administrative investigation has been initiated.
QuintanillaBorja was hired by the LAPD in January 2020 and was assigned to the 77th Street Division.
