A Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy accused of lying to an LAPD officer about a possible robbery in downtown Los Angeles pleaded not guilty Monday to a misdemeanor charge.
Bradley Scott Dietze, 45, is charged with resisting, delaying or obstructing an LAPD officer, who was investigating whether a marijuana distribution warehouse was being robbed on Oct. 29, 2018.
Dietze was ordered back to court on Feb. 11 for a pretrial hearing.
A warrant was filed Oct. 25 and Dietze was briefly taken into custody on Oct. 29, one year after the alleged incident, according to the District Attorney’s Office and jail records. He faces up to a year in jail if convicted of the misdemeanor count.
The case was investigated by the Internal Criminal Investigations Bureau of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
