LAPD Det. Frank Lyga apologized for his controversial remarks
Los Angeles Police Det. Frank Lyga told a department disciplinary panel that he deeply regretted comments he made at a training class in November 2013, according to his attorney. Lyga was accused of making racially-charged and sexist comments at the session. The board of rights panel recommended that Lyga be fired for his remarks. LAPD Chief Charlie Beck on Wednesday forwarded paperwork to the city’s Police Commission that finalized the 28-year department veteran’s termination.
