INGLEWOOD, CA—It seems that Inglewood City Hall is the place to pick up criminals of late.
Reynaldo Gonzalez, 56, a city worker for the City of Inglewood, was picked up at city hall on Friday, June 6 at approximately 9:30 a.m. Inglewood Police department (IPD) officers arrested him for the felony charge of 243(D)PC: “battery with serious bodily injury.”
Earlier this year, California State Senator Rod Wright, who has an office at Inglewood City Hall on the 6th floor, was charged with eight felony counts. (A related story, “Could Outside Assault Have Been Meant for Senator?,” was posted on CrimeVoice last December.)
It should be noted that a mistake may have been made in the IPD police report. According to the real estate records and the City of Inglewood’s 32-page employee e-mail list, the correct spelling is “Reynaldo Gonzales” with an “s” and not a “z.”
In any case, it may have been a short walk for police serving the warrant; Inglewood Police Department’s front door is about 35 feet from the front door of city hall. It is unknown why police did not go to Gonzales’ home on the 3000 block of West 117th Street in Inglewood.
Bail was set at $50,000.
