Sheriff Alex Villanueva continues to resist the Civilian Oversight Commission’s inquiries into allegations of wrongdoing within the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. Villanueva told KNX that the charges the commission has levied against his department are merely part of a “circus act.”

He added that the commission is acting on the behest of the Board of Supervisors in a “proxy war” with the department.
