Few gold stars are going out this week to L.A. County’s sheriff’s deputies. Following yesterday’s outrageous footage that showed one deputy slugging a woman on a public Bellflower bus, KTLA now reports that a 27-year-old deputy was relieved of duty and arrested after accepting a burrito containing beans, cheese, and a heroin-filled hypodermic needle, with the intention of smuggling it into a courthouse jail. The deputy is currently free on bail and pleading “not guilty.” Hey, we tried our best to warn you that “horse” was making a comeback. [KTLA]
