LOS ANGELES (AP) — A lawsuit filed by a Los Angeles police captain accuses a veteran detective of damaging her reputation by depicting her as promiscuous during a training lecture he gave to more than two dozen officers.

The Los Angeles Times reports the civil complaint filed last week by Capt. Lillian Carranza accuses Detective Frank Lyga of slander, intentional infliction of emotional distress and invasion of privacy.

According to the complaint, Lyga described Carranza as a "very cute little Hispanic lady" who had been "swapped around a bunch of times."

Lyga is the subject of an internal investigation for remarks he made during the training class, which were recorded by another officer.

His attorney tells the Times his client acknowledges it was his voice on the recording.

Lyga is on paid leave.
