The Los Angeles Times is reporting that at least eight Bell officials were arrested on Tuesday morning as Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. Steve Cooley prepared to announce criminal charges.

From the L.A. Times:

The charges are expected to be detailed at a morning press conference, according to a source with knowledge of the case who was not authorized to comment publicly. Authorities were in Bell Tuesday  morning making arrests, but the identities of all those taken into custody were not immediately available. A source said four council members were taken into custody. A witness told The Times he saw Councilman Luis Artiga taken away in handcuffs Tuesday morning.

Will have more on PublicCEO soon.
