Los Angeles – An assistant baseball coach at Kennedy High has been arrested and accused of Child Endangerment.
Detectives from the Los Angeles police Devonshire Area Station said Pedro Cruz Trujillo, 24, was taken into custody on June 25 following an investigation that began on May 25.
According to investigators, Trujillo took a group of six students, ranging in age from 14 to 16 years of age, to a baseball game at Dodger Stadium. It is alleged that Trujillo and some of the students smoked marijuana in Trujillo's car to and from the game.
The alleged incident was reported after a school staff member overheard students talking about it, investigators said. They said the staff member did an investigation, and reported those findings to police on May 25. Detectives have been working with the school to confirm the allegations, and to determine if there have been other, similar incidents.
Trujillo was booked on six counts of Child Endangering and is being held on $100,000 bail. Investigators said additional charges are pending for Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor.
