LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Police Department says one of its officers has been arrested on suspicion of workers’ compensation fraud.

Officials say Officer John Bailey was taken into custody Tuesday after a felony warrant was issued for his arrest. It wasn’t known Thursday if he has an attorney.

City News Service reports the investigation stems from a medical claim filed by Bailey earlier this year. The 43-year-old is accused of knowingly committing workers’ compensation fraud and receiving benefits under false pretenses.

Bailey, who lives in San Bernardino County, was jailed in lieu of $60,000 bail.
