Former Cop Arrested After Domestic Dispute

Ex San Ramon police officer Louis Lombardi is in jail in lieu of $1 million bail.

BAY CITY NEWS – A former San Ramon police officer who resigned from the force after being implicated in a was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of domestic violence, sheriff's spokesman Jimmy Lee said.

Deputies received a call reporting a domestic disturbance in the 700 block of Willow Lake Road in Discovery Bay at about 7:40 p.m.   

After investigating the case, deputies arrested Louis Lombardi, 39, on suspicion of making terrorist threats, a felony, and misdemeanor spousal abuse, Lee said.          

He is being held at the Martinez Detention Facility on $1 million bail.   

Lombardi had been charged in Contra Costa County along with former Contra Costa County Narcotic Enforcement Team Cmdr. Norman Wielsch, former private investigator Christopher Butler, and former Danville police Officer Stephen Tanabe.          

The district attorney's office later put the case on hold and turned the investigation over to the FBI.          

Wielsch and Butler have since been charged in a 17-count federal grand jury indictment alleging the pair engaged in police corruption, extortion, armed robbery and drug sales.          

Lombardi and Tanabe have not yet been charged in federal court.

Mama Tex, you wanna know how many stories like Pete's are out there? Too many to turn into TV movies. This happens all the time. I have one friend who was given the works. He eventually left California and moved to Texas. He was the worst case I've ever heard but there are many others. I'm trying to help a guy right now whose daughter is just about being held hostage by Child Protective Services (which should be renamed Child Predation Services). This whole system is rife with corruption, and the system is made of people, and these people are our family and friends. We need to root out the bad apples and shame them, ostracize them, force them to confront their corruption before it metastasizes. We learn our history for times like these. Start studying up on 1930s Germany just prior to Hitler coming to power. History doesn't repeat but it rhymes.

Dear Mr. Booster, Somehow over 30 years I've known more than one person killed by cops, more than one person mudered and more than one cop arrested. Mr. Wielsch's, the man that once carried a gun, a badge and cowboy with his own rule book is friends of cops that pulled guns on me, made accusations that I was drug dealer, burglar, that I stole my own tools, had me in handcuffs so my neighbors could see all and then panned my neighborhood asking questions about me. Of course nothing was true but it was effective, that is called something akin to "clandestine disruption campaign" which is used to turn the adversary sideways. Perhaps you'd like to debate the shooting of a black man in a central county location where his wife told me a story about how her husband went to work normal then got a call saying her husband was dead - shot dead by police. That day he was another Contra Costa Resident that displayed sudden mental illness that began sometime between 8 AM and 12 noon he went first time 5150. -If you'd like more Mr. Nutcreek Booster I've got stories dating back to 1981. My eyes have been open, watching and logging events for a LONG TIME. I complained about CNET back in 2006. I guess the 99% must not read letters to the Board of Supervisors or their own IA reports. The 99% also stalled police (fantasy recap) report that was 7 years old for 60 days, redacted to useless but that report connects DPD/CCC SO to Butler-in a big way. You're WCPD or close to them.

Good links - yes they beat their wives as one cop I've encountered his wife showed up with a good solid shiner. She appears to be victim of many many many long years.

Yes Sgt Shields I am same person posting and I guess my words are of concern to your department. The 2004 assault reeks of cover-up and yes Butler was in my house in 2004, he knows Officer Murhpy (CNET) and yes they were laughing, and yes Sgt. Shields I still have 80K in medical pending - I could use some help, and but Sgt. Shields my attorney was beaten in Walnut Creek in 2006 and decided suing Danville was too risky. ... perhaps there is a conspiracy between CNET Officers as my attorney LEFT the area to never return. I know Building Inspectors beat residents everyday, they are allowed to travel accross town, trespass, assault residents over an alleged stolen paintbrush. Let's be real Sgt Sheilds no one is buying the Danville Koolaid any longer.

More on CNET - During Mid-August 2004 my truck fire was actually an arson fire - try getting the Danville Police to help - if anyone saw this fire please contact me. i beleive Officers from the Danville Police Department connected to this persons are responsible. You see Gary Collins tried to kill me in 2004 three weeks after this fire. I get it! Officer Murphy is supposed to investigate when residents get beaten up - but like all attempted murders in Danville committed by Danville Building Inspectors we then make the target a drug dealer. The CNET Storm Troopers have helped local attorneys bleed divorcees of nearly every nickel in their pocket and when they're done they throw you in jail. Will the court evaluator on payola step forward? Sure they will and they're gonna finger the attorneys, judges and spouses connected to Chris Butler Building inspector's death under investigation Man tumbled down elevator shaft during Palo Alto home inspection in December 2011 >> http://www.paloaltoonline.com/news/show_story.php?id=25104
