Four current and former female Newport Beach Police Department employees filed a lawsuit Thursday contending they were sexually harassed by a police captain and that the police chief "condoned" the behavior. In a lawsuit filed in Orange County Superior Court, the women claim Capt. Anthony Villa touched breasts, made sexual overtures and suggestive remarks--including detailed descriptions of a pornographic movie--and that Chief Arb Campbell knew of the harassment and did nothing to stop it.
