Officer Daniel Andrew, who was put on a desk assignment after the incident, has been removed from duty and put on paid administrative leave, the CHP said.The agency didn’t reveal if it made a recommendation to prosecutors but said in a news release that its report outlined potentially serious charges he could face. It didn’t specify possible charges.The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office confirmed the case is under review. A separate, internal CHP investigation is ongoing.The July 1 incident sparked outrage as video showed Andrew hitting Marlene Pinnock, 51, several times alongside Interstate 10.Pinnock’s attorney Caree Harper said District Attorney Jackie Lacey should file battery and attempted murder charges against the officer.”I can’t foresee any reason why she would not press felony charges against him,” Harper said. “Our hope is that she acts swiftly.”
