On February 16, 2009, it was reported that Leopoldo was arrested in Tustin, CA on charges of possession of a controlled substance. Leopoldo was standing by his car, wearing sandals, playing with a yo-yo, and donning a Long Beach, CA Police department jumpsuit which included a stitched-on badge that can only be worn by sworn officers. The cotton jumpsuit was designed for officers in the 1990s to wear in the event of major disaster response, such as a massive earthquake. Upon arrest he was found to be in possession of what is believed to be methamphetamines.
It was after they approached him and searched his car they found a glass pipe used to smoke methamphetamine as well as a baggie that had some of the drug actually in it. He ended up testing positive for the drug once they got him back to the station and ran the tests.
"Leopoldo is being held on $20,000 bail at the Intake/Release Center in Orange County, Calif. He will be arraigned on Feb. 18 at the Central Justice Center in Santa Ana, Calif. "
Adding another level of the bizarre to the story was the recent push by Kimo to be Executive Officer of the California State Athletic Commission. For a man to say that he should be in charge of cleaning up a corrupt situation and then go out and impersonate a cop while holding meth.......
