SAN DIEGO (AP) - No criminal charges will be filed against four San Diego police officers who delayed reporting a crash by a drunken detective.
U-T San Diego (http://bit.ly/19lEtWd ) says the county district attorney's office has decided not to prosecute three police sergeants and a detective who waited hours to report the December crash.
Another detective, Jeffrey Blackford, was off duty when he crashed his undercover police car into a utility box.
Instead of reporting the incident, Blackford called two off-duty friends, who called two colleagues. A formal investigation wasn't launched for two hours.
Blackford pleaded guilty in April to misdemeanor drunken driving. He was sentenced to DUI classes and 25 days of public work service.
