O.C. sheriff probes helicopter joyride
Orange County sheriff's officials are investigating allegations that a helicopter supervisor took a woman for a joyride on an agency helicopter.
Sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino confirmed Thursday an investigation is underway after the department received an anonymous letter stating the allegations.
The Orange County Register reported that the supervisor allegedly took his girlfriend for a ride Oct. 10. Amormino said the alleged passenger was a female employee, but it was unclear what the relationship between the two was.
"If we find there was any wrongdoing, the department will take appropriate action," he said. The supervisor has not been placed on leave.
