= What on earth is going on at the L A County sheriff’s office???

= The Board of Supervisors orders beaches closed over the 4th of July weekend.

= The local sheriff’s office announces the beach closure order … so does the Malibu mayor.

= But late last night … Sheriff Alex Villanueva says he was not consulted by the Supervisors… and will not enforce the beach closure order.

= Coincidentally ... the sheriff's budget had just been cut by the Board of Supervisors.

= Villanueva calls the budget cuts "defund the police."

= Malibu pays for its sheriff's services ... but they may get cut anyway.

= 25 Malibu charities compete for grant money from the city … we’ll tell you the winners and the losers.
