LAPD officer arrested at border - but not the one they were looking for


An LAPD officer assigned to Hollywood division was arrested by U.S. authorities at one of the California-Mexico border crossings this weekend. NBC News says the officer was stopped for questioning Saturday night and arrested after someone was found hiding in his car.

Meanwhile, law enforcement is still looking for officer Henry Solis, who failed to report to work Saturday at Devonshire division and is wanted as a person of interest in a killing outside a Pomona nightclub.
