SDPD captain's son pleads not guilty to assault, sexual battery charges

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The 23-year-old son of a San Diego police captain, who's accused of groping two women, punching a third and vandalizing a vehicle outside a Pacific Beach taco shop, pleaded not guilty Wednesday to seven misdemeanor charges, including assault and sexual battery.

Alex Guaderrama of Alpine was charged last week in connection with an Aug. 21 altercation in the 1100 block of Garnet Avenue, according to the City Attorney's Office.

About 1 that morning, Guaderrama, a restaurant worker and son of San Diego Police Department Capt. Manny Guaderrama, allegedly fondled and grabbed two young women while waiting in line at a sidewalk Mexican restaurant, then hit a friend of theirs in the face when she protested.

Guaderrama then allegedly broke out the window of a nearby parked car, slashing his hand in the process, SDPD public-affairs Lt. Andra Brown said.

Officers responding to the ruckus detained Guaderrama -- whose blood-alcohol leveled was measured at 0.17 percent, more than twice the legal limit for driving -- and took him to a hospital. After being treated for his wound, Guaderrama was released on his own recognizance.

A judge Wednesday ordered Guaderrama to wear an alcohol-monitoring device as a condition of his release, and to have no contact with the alleged victims in the case.

Guaderrama will be back in court Jan. 8 for a readiness conference.
