News, Ex-Baldwin Park officer granted probation after alleged beating of handcuffed teen : detailed suggestions and opinions about Ex-Baldwin Park officer granted probation after alleged beating of handcuffed teen .
A former Baldwin Park police officer accused of beating a handcuffed teenager after he surrendered in 2019 was granted probation under the terms of a plea deal last week, authorities said.
Ryan Felton, 36, pleaded no contest to one count of misdemeanor assault and was sentenced to a year of probation, ordered to complete 200 hours of community service and instructed to undergo anger management training, according to Greg Risling, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office.
Last October, prosecutors charged Felton with two counts of assault under color of authority for allegedly kicking a 16-year-old who had lain on the ground in surrender after fleeing a motor vehicle stop in 2019. Prosecutors also accused Felton of striking the teen several times while the young man was seated in the back of a patrol car.
The teen, Anthony Romero, was charged with attempted murder and shooting at an inhabited dwelling last year in an unrelated case three weeks after prosecutors announced the charges against Felton, court records show.
