Rod Bernsen, Ex-LAPD sergeant/reporter arrested

Wow, what's goin' on around here? They were saying on the news "This may have to do with some incident involving young boys on this cruise he was on"

Story here


Ex-LAPD sergeant/reporter arrested after cruise
New, 7:40 a.m. Rod Bernsen is expected to appear in court today on allegations that he committed a crime aboard a cruise ship.
By The Associated Press

A retired police sergeant and former television reporter was arrested in Long Beach after returning from a cruise, authorities said.

Roderick "Rod" Bernsen was expected to appear in court today on allegations that he committed a crime aboard a cruise ship, said FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller. He was being held without bail at Long Beach City Jail.

Details about the alleged crime were not immediately released. Eimiller said a criminal complaint would be filed today in U.S. District Court.

Bernsen, 58, was KTTV-TV's law enforcement specialist until he left the station in 2004. His broadcasting career followed service in the Los Angeles Police Department, as a sergeant and spokesman.

From late last year until May, he filled in as a host on KFI-AM (640), Los Angeles' most popular talk radio station.

I'm extremely surprised about this. Not that I know him personally or anything to know what he does with his social life - but i've listened to him many many times and it's just really surprising to me. I hope this turns out not be accurate.

I've wondered about this... who has jurisdiction when a crime is committed on a cruise ship in international waters?

He's been accused of molesting two 12-year old boys while in the sauna with them.

John and Ken on KFI here in LA read the report of what was alleged to have happened on that boat.


Some highlights:

2 twelve year old boys (cousins on a family trip)

Rod talking to them about sexual stuff (puberty, hard-ons, being naked, and other stuff)

Rod bending over naked in the steam room to show the boys his "surgery scar"(old injury) at the base of his spine.

Rod trying to make plans with them for more "sauna time"

Rod slapping the naked ass of one of the boys

Rod touching the genitals of one of the boys with his bare foot


Wow....
