    Team 10 obtains court records suggesting San Diego Police Department cover-up

    Federal court records suggest former and current San Diego police leadership may have covered for a corrupt cop. Team 10 found federal court transcripts that describe a confidential meeting at the department's highest level between former chief William Lansdowne and Executive Chief David Ramirez. The transcripts stem from the remaining civil lawsuit against the city of San Diego for the actions former officer Anthony Arevalos, who was convicted on multiple counts of sexual battery.


    A court transcript revealed Lansdowne and his deputy, Ramirez, responded when the incident was reported in the media. "When the reporters … get it in the news, we have a problem," Ramirez said to Lansdowne, according to the transcript. Court records show Lansdowne replied, "I want to do one thing and one thing only -- find that documentation." Depositions taken for Doe's case show Ramirez called police supervisors in 2011 to find out if the supervisors had documented the baton incident in 1997.
