A veteran Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department deputy has been arrested on suspicion of committing lewd acts with a child, police said Thursday night.

Oscar Rodriguez, who was assigned to the Marina del Rey station, allegedly committed the unspecified acts against the child while he was off duty, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

Rodriguez was relieved of duty pending the outcome of a criminal investigation by the LAPD and a Sheriff's Department administrative probe. He has been with the department for 10 years.

A resident of Los Angeles, Rodriguez was being held in lieu of $100,000 bail. He was arrested Thursday, the LAPD said.
