Over the course of serving the Los Angeles Police Department for 34 years, Capt. Joseph Hiltner rose to the rank of commander at Foothill Division.
Then a disturbing surveillance video from Aug. 21 surfaced. Two of his officers pulled over a woman in Tujunga for using her cellphone. There was a struggle, she was slammed to the ground twice, the second time while she was in handcuffs. Once she was placed in the backseat of the patrol car, the officers appeared to share a celebratory "fist bump."
