SAN FERNANDO, Calif. — San Fernando’s acting police chief is under investigation over allegations that he fixed a traffic ticket for a local congressman’s aide.

The investigation is the latest episode in a series of embarrblanking incidents for San Fernando’s local government.

A YouTube video in the middle of the controversy shows a San Fernando police officer writing a ticket to Fred Anthony Flores, who is a high-ranking aide to Rep. Howard Berman.

Flores appears agitated in the video, but he told the San Fernando Valley Sun that was not the case. The video appears to come from the patrol car’s dashboard camera, indicating that someone from the police department could have played a role in posting it on the Internet.

On Jan. 19, Lt. Jeff Eley was placed on paid leave after accusations surfaced that he fixed that ticket for Flores. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is investigating that case.
