L.A. Sheriff's Capt. Took Inmate Golfing

April 05, 2012  | 

A Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department captain apparently took a convicted jewel thief out for golf tips, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Capt. Jeff Donahue escorted Frank Carrillo in a patrol Jeep to a hilltop golf course on Catalina Island last summer. Carrillo gave the captain tips on how to reduce his double-digit handicap.

Deputy William Cordero, who accompanied the two, filed a formal complaint, after his Donahue documented in the jail log that Carrillo never left the station.

This AH should be fired for list of things I could come up with..........then he would have lots of time to practice his golf swing.

That's the kind of administrative crap that makes you embarrassed about your department, even though you still like the work. Kudo's to the deputy who had the balls to file a complaint, and my best wishes for your future with LASD.

Maybe some tips on the location of other thief's as well?

Hey, I'm a retired captain. Can't blame the guy for wanting to improve his golf. But, you all have to remember this, in police work of any type,=: don't lie, don't cover for your partner, don't file false documents, don't commit perjury. Jail is waiting for you if you do.
