A deputy with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has been arrested for alleged lewd acts on a child.

Authorities say Oscar Rodriguez was taken into custody on Thursday.

Police say he committed the alleged acts while he was off duty.

Rodriguez, who has been with the department for 10 years, has been relieved of his duties pending a criminal investigation. He was last assigned to the Marina del Rey station.

He is currently being held on $100 thousand bail.
