LAPD Officer Charged with Threatening Woman's Life
It sounds like the Los Angeles Police Department found a regular Cyrano de Bergerac when it hired Sgt. Joshua Jinwook Chong. The Orange County District Attorney says the 41-year-old Fullerton resident sent threatening text messages to an unidentified woman with whom he had formerly been romantically involved. He has been charged with one felony count of making criminal threats and two misdemeanors.
On Oct. 17, 2011 Chong reportedly sent text messages to the woman threatening to kill her male friend. Not satisfied with this level of intimidation, Chong turned up the heat and called her directly to threaten her life.
