Off-Duty LAPD Officer Arrested For Reportedly Exposing Himself On Precious Wetlands
An off-duty LAPD officer was arrested last week after detectives found him allegedly exposing himself on the wetlands of Huntington Beach.
Ryan Eric Galliher, 33, who lives in Huntington Beach and is assigned to the LAPD Van Nuys division, is now facing charges of committing a lewd act, according to CBS Los Angeles.
Huntington Beach police arrested Galliher last Thursday at 7:33 a.m. after detectives reportedly saw him exposing himself in the wetlands on a pathway on Bolsa Chica Street. They were originally scouring the scene after authorities received complaints about a man doing just that.
Galliher was taken to Huntington Beach City Jail, but has since been released. LAPD has placed him on administrative leave, while the case is being investigated.
Anyone with information about this is urged to call Huntington Beach police at (714) 375-5066.
