Leroy Fisher, 77, longtime Inglewood resident and former City Council candidate, was arrested June 6 on suspicion of trying to molest a minor, according to a source.
A regular attendee at Inglewood City Council meetings, Fisher ran unsuccessfully for a seat in Council District 1 in March 2017.
Fisher was taken into custody by Inglewood Police detectives and Special Enforcement team personnel in City Hall after last week’s meeting adjourned.
According to a source, Fisher allegedly tried to solicit a minor child to get into his car. An eye witness gave his license plate number to police.
Fisher was booked into the city jail without incident, and held on a $26,000.00 bond. After booking, he bonded out of jail and was released pending his initial appearance in Superior Court.
