A 911 dispatcher in Orange County is facing serious charges Friday.Police arrested 42-year-old Lissa Marie Domanic from Yorba Linda for allegedly accessing confidential criminal history information from a state data base using her position as a dispatcher.

Domanic shared the information with a white supremacist group, with the intention of having two men assaulted in jail, police said.

A search warrant served at her home on Sept. 3 turned up letters and photographs suggesting gang involvement, and police said Domanic was under the influence of a controlled substance and in possession of methamphetamine at the time of her arrest.

Domanic is on administrative leave and is being held on $50,000 bail.
