After Lehocky arrested Chamberlin, Lehocky charged Chamberlin with resisting arrest and battery on a peace officer.

Chamberlin instead alleges that the force used on him was grossly and shockingly disproportionate to any offenses that he may have committed. Chamberlin alleges that Lehocky used excessive force against him by ordering a police service attack dog, Bart ("PSD Bart"), to bite Chamberlin repeatedly, after Chamberlin posed no threat to the safety of Lehocky or anyone else. https://casetext.com/case/chamberlin-v-city-of-albuquerque-3 Marlo Marquez Case Justia dot com 2005/02/25 Appeal of 1983 case involving dog bites https://law.justia.com/cases/federal/appellate-courts/F3/399/1216/546061/ Marlo Marquez, Plaintiff-appellant, v. the City of Albuquerque and Officer Andrew Lehocky, Both in His Official Capacity As a Police Officer and Individually, Defendants-appellees, 399 F.3d 1216 (10th Cir. 2005) U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit - 399 F.3d 1216 (10th Cir. 2005) This is an appeal of a judgment on a jury verdict for the Defendants in a § 1983 case alleging the use of excessive force to effectuate an arrest following a high-speed chase. Plaintiff, Marlo Marquez, was a passenger in a car that was involved in a high-speed police chase that started because the police believed the car contained burglary suspects. At the conclusion of the chase, Plaintiff was apprehended by Defendant Lehocky's police dog. Plaintiff sued, claiming the use of the dog constituted excessive force in violation of Plaintiff's constitutional rights. https://law.justia.com/cases/federal/appellate-courts/F3/399/1216/546061/ Articles From Real Crimes: APD Officer “sicced his 80-pound attack dog on a homeless woman who was asleep at the time.  This was the same Andrew LeHocky who had just been named “Officer of the Month.”  (1992/01/29) “APD Officer Andrew Lehocky was sued for violating the civil rights of Kenneth Wayne Tortolita.

Bart was supposedly sent in to locate Moriah and “guard and bark” to let Officers know where she was hiding. Instead, Bart ran into the schoolyard, located Moriah and immediately attacked her. Bart never bothered—or was ordered not—to bark. The attack left Moriah with four deep wounds that required three surgeries and a skin graft. Lehocky stated his supervisor, Sgt. Tom Garduno, told him, "Good job. I'm glad nobody died." A federal jury subsequently found Lehocky liable for the Moriah Smith attack. Lehocky was ordered to pay the $50,000 necessary to partially remove scars. Lehocky contended that Moriah must be a “bad” girl because his dog, Bart, would only bite “bad” people.

Lopez, now 44, was initially placed on administrative leave while an internal affairs probe commenced. While Lopez was eventually fired, investigators concluded he had not committed a crime since no victim/witness observed the daytime encounter. The woman in the photos was not identified, but police said that she was not connected to any of Lopez’s cases. Seen at right, Lopez was hired in mid-2015 by the sheriff’s office in Valencia County, about 90 miles southwest of Santa Fe. Lopez worked as a deputy until his promotion last year to detective. He now investigates homicides and other assorted felonious activity. Yesterday, the sheriff’s office directed county residents to call Lopez if they were contacted by a telephone scammer claiming to work for the department. Lopez was eligible to seek employment with a police agency after the conclusion of a brief suspension ordered by the New Mexico Law Enforcement Academy. Additionally, the state agency placed Lopez on probation for a year and directed him to complete an ethics training course. According to a hearing transcript, a remorseful Lopez told board members that he was attending marriage counseling sessions with his wife and “other counseling...regarding his behavior.” Lopez’s wife subsequently filed Lopez Lee,   Espanola,  Espanola PD/Officer; Retired-2018,  2018/03 Complaint about this officer’s rudeness; Please note that the retirement came the same year as a complaint, - , Rio Grande Sun-2018/03/29; Facebook-2018/07/27 Rio Grande Sun (2018/03/29) Residents Lodge 17 Complaints Against Police Dept http://www.riograndesun.com/news/cops_courts/residents-lodge-complaints-against-police- dept/article_73a09d2c-3382-11e8-b6cf-1bd24046c927.html Excerpt:   Officer Lee Lopez is named in one complaint as being rude Facebook 2018/07/27 Retirement noted in Facebook https://www.facebook.com/EspanolaPoliceDepartment/videos/2042110945812747/ Excerpt:  at Espanola Police Department.

In 2012, TV reporter Christina Rodda filed a lawsuit against the city and against Officer Stephanie Lopez. According to Rodda’s lawsuit, she was covering a rave at a club called Tumbleweeds when she caught Lopez on tape getting rough with a teenager. Lopez then demanded that Rodda hand over the tape. Rodda initially objected. Lopez then confiscated the entire camera. If she had taken the camera because the video was evidence of some kind, she should have tagged the camera and taken it to the police station. Instead, according to Rodda’s lawsuit, Lopez took the camera home. Three days later, the camera was returned to Rodda’s employer, KOB. The incriminating video had been deleted. Rodda was able to recover the file with the assistance of a specialist. Lopez then had Rodda arrested.
