A deputy with the La Paz County Sheriff’s Department has reportedly been arrested after allegations against him surfaced, demanding an outside review.
The nature of the alleged crime is unconfirmed, but was evidently serious enough that the Sheriff’s Department asked Yuma County Sheriff’s Department to conduct an investigation. Detectives with Yuma County reportedly responded, conducted an investigation and then placed Deputy John Gomez under arrest.
Gomez was reportedly booked into the La Paz County Jail and was later released from the Parker Justice Court.
More information may be released when available.
