A Los Angeles Sheriff’s deputy is under investigation after being heard over her possibly radio possibly engaged in sexual activities when she was supposed to be working, TMZ reported.
In the audio obtained by TMZ, a female police officer can be heard giggling with a man, telling him that he might rip her underwear, and moaning with pleasure.
The rookie female deputy was working at the Men’s Central Jail that night and might have slipped away during her break to meet up with someone, the outlet reported.
Law enforcement sources told TMZ they believed she went to a car park during her shift and accidentally turned her radio on. Midway through the transmission, possibly after realizing it was on, she appeared to turn off the radio’s microphone.
The department has launched an internal investigation into the incident, and punishment could range from a suspension to a firing.
The Los Angeles Sheriff’s department is also seeking to identify whether the man in the recording was also a police officer and whether he was also on the job when the incident took place, per TMZ.
“The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is aware of a potential incident involving personnel possibly involved in inappropriate behavior,” the agency said in a statement to the Los Angeles Times.
“The Department is inquiring and investigating further. The department does not tolerate inappropriate behavior and has an expectation that each department member will conduct themselves in a professional manner consistent with our values.”
