A San Diego police captain's son was booked and released after pleading not guilty to seven felony charges, including sexual battery.
Alex Guaderrama, 23, denied all charges stemming from an altercation in August, when he allegedly groped two women, punched a third and vandalized a car outside a Pacific Beach taco shop.
The judge ordered Guaderrama to submit to an alcohol detection bracelet by Friday and placed protective orders on all 4 victims.
Guaderrama was not arrested or taken into custody on the night of the incident. Instead, officials filed a “notify warrant” to the City Attorney’s office, which detectives said is normal protocol.
Guaderrama identified himself to the officers the night of the incident as the son of Capt. Manny Guaderrama. He also admitted he had been drinking.
Lt. Andra Brown with the SDPD insisted at the time of the incident that he wasn’t treated any differently.
“He was treated the way any other young man in this situation is treated." she said in a previous article. "His dad is not the commanding officer of the area in which this took place. The responding officers are not under the command of his father."
Guaderrama is scheduled to be in court again in January.
