An LAPD officer has been arrested for allegedly trying to smuggle someone across the U.S.-Mexico border. The LAPD has not released the name of the officer, but they have said that he worked in the LAPD's Hollywood Division, NBC LA reports. He was arrested on Saturday night by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers after they found someone stowed away in his trunk when he was stopped for questioning at the border. The officer may be charged with human smuggling.

So far, the LAPD has had no comment.
