LAPD cop arrested in Altadena

For five years some residents of Laurel Drive in Altadena have complained to the Sheriff's Department about LAPD Officer Irsie Henry, the Pasadena Weekly's André Coleman reports. They say Henry has been harassing interracial couples that live nearby, forcing two couples to buy video cameras to keep him under surveillance. Things came to a head on July 12 when Henry, an 18-year LAPD veteran, was arrested at his home for suspicion of misdemeanor battery, after allegedly attacking a neighbor. Henry was cited then released, and he has been relieved of duty because of this and another pending complaint.
