SANTA ANA, Calif. – A Southern California city councilman has been arrested and faces a dozen felony charges, including false imprisonment and sexual battery.
MyFoxLA reports Carlos Bustamante, a councilman for the city of Santa Ana, was arrested on the way to Monday night's City Council meeting and is being held on a 100,000 bail.
The councilman faces six felony counts of false imprisonment, three felony counts of assault with intent to commit a sexual offense and single counts of stalking, attempted sexual battery by restraint and other charges including several misdemeanors and sentencing enhancements.
Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas says his office will detail Bustmante's alleged crimes at a Tuesday news conference.
Bustamante has been a councilman since 2004, MyFoxLA reports. He is married to a Santa Ana attorney and has three young children.
The other members of the City Council reportedly found out about Bustamante's arrest after the meeting had started.
