Substance thrown at LAPD chief during meeting

Three LAPD Veterans Named Finalists for Chief ~ Robert Arcos, Michel Moore, Bill Scott

She had been accused of punching a patient at a downtown hospital after checking herself in complaining of back and chest pain.

The Los Angeles Times previously reported that Wilson was mentally ill but repeatedly denied feeling suicidal to jail staff. It's still unclear whether detention officers were ever notified of her alarming behavior, the newspaper wrote.

In December, the City Council paid almost $300,000 to settle claims brought by Wilson's relatives. The settlement came months after prosecutors determined that detention officers weren't criminally liable for Wilson's death. Activists contend she died as a result of a confrontation with police. In an unsurprising turn of events, the LAPD investigated itself and declared they were not responsible for Wilson's death.

Reports from the scene suggest that Sheila Hines-Brim allegedly threw some of Wilson's ashes at Beck and then reportedly shouted, "That's Wakiesha", as she was walking away.

The meeting was contentious before it even began.

Just as the meeting was kicking off, a recess was called after a woman interjected to accuse officials of lying about the details surrounding Wilson's death.

Police have not said how Bagshaw was killed or if weapons were involved, simply saying she died in a "very violent attack". He was previously named a a person of interest in the death of Baleigh Bagshaw, who was found dead in her home Monday.

The LAPD also recently revealed that the officer who was on duty while Wakiesha Wilson died ended up getting fired for negligence. Lisa Hines said her sister became emotional because she believes Beck is protecting the officers responsible for Wakiesha Wilson's death. "She's going to stay with you", NBC News said. She told reporters that she felt vindicated.

Hines-Brim told CBS Los Angeles that her niece told her to throw the ashes.

Video of the meeting shows a woman releasing ashes or some other powder near Beck and in his general direction.

The commission meeting was adjourned, the room was cleared. Police spokesman Joshua Rubenstein told The Post that they determined the powder wasn't risky but have yet to determine what it is.

Both Hines-Brim and Abdullah are expected to be charged with misdemeanors.

Youth Justice L.A., a youth-led movement against mass incarceration, police violence and the criminalization of youth, issued a statement on Twitter noting, "Black Lives Matter activist Melina Abdullah @DocMellyMel & Wakeisha Wilson's aunt Sheila Hynes Brim were unjustly arrested by LAPD at headquarters for NO REASON at the LAPD Commissioner's Meeting".
