PASADENA (CNS) – A former Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy was
arrested today at his Pasadena home for allegedly breaking into his ex-
fiancee’s residence last year and threatening her boyfriend with a gun.
Reymundo Lainez, 42, was off duty on April 17, 2010, when he allegedly
broke into his former fiancee’s Pasadena residence, pointed a gun at her
boyfriend and threatened and punched him, said Jane Robison of the Los Angeles
County District Attorney’s Office.
He was taken into custody by Pasadena police on felony counts of first-
degree burglary with a person present, assault with a firearm and making a
criminal threat, and a misdemeanor count of battery, Robison said.
If convicted, he faces more than 16 years in prison.
Prosecutors said Lainez is no longer with the sheriff’s department, but
sheriff’s officials could provide no details.
