Mario Hernandez, who resigned last week as a San Fernando City Councilman, said the DA's charges against Councilwoman (and ex-girlfriend) Maribel De La Torre over a violent argument should be dropped. He also said that he only filed for a restraining order against De La Torre at the urging of a biased San Fernando police sergeant who was motivated by revenge. From NBC 4:
“When you have an investigating officer posting comments on Facebook that clearly relate to the council member, mayor and myself, saying, 'San Fernando residents urge mayor, council members to resign,' he's no longer impartial,'" Hernandez said. “He's looking to hang someone.”
Hernandez said he plans to meet with the Los Angeles District Attorney on Monday to withdraw all charges.
