Mentone, CA-- San Bernardino County Sheriff’s officers stopped off-duty LAPD sergeant Lucien Archie Daigle, 44 after a collision early in the evening of Oct. 23. The sergeant reeked of pepper spray and there were burglary proceeds in his car that were in plain view.
It was moments earlier a yet to be identified woman came home to burglary in progress. The woman went on the offensive and used some very potent pepper spray on the burglar who fled the scene.
Daigle was detained just a few miles from the crime scene. There is no know connection between the burglary victim and Daigle.
Deputies transported Daigle to a local hospital for minor injuries sustained in the collision and brought him in for routine booking. It was during the booking process that they learned that Daigle was a LAPD sergeant.
Daigle was released on $125,000.00 bail. The LAPD placed the veteran officer on administrative leave pending investigation from his position. Daigle worked in the Wilshire, Central and Olympic Divisions of the department.
