An LAPD officer was charged Thursday with threatening a woman with whom he had a relationship, according to Orange County prosecutors.
Dale Wayne Ziesmer, 48, of San Clemente, was charged with a felony count
of criminal threats, according to the Orange County District Attorney's Office. Ziesmer, who was being held without bail, was scheduled to be arraigned today.
The relationship between Ziesmer and the alleged victim was not immediately clear.
The nature of the alleged threat was also unclear. Ziesmer is accused of threatening the woman Tuesday morning. The woman told a friend, who is also a Los Angeles police officer, who reported the alleged threat to Los Angeles investigators, according to the Orange County District Attorney's Office.
Ziesmar's gun was taken away from him when he showed up for work Tuesday, according to prosecutors.
