Drunk Police Chief Got Preferential Treatment When Pulled Over
It's normal day on the job as a police officer until you pull a suspicious damaged car, lean into the window and realize it's your boss. Yes, your boss as in Riverside's Chief of Police -- and there is signs of drinking, fresh off a visit to a strip club mixed with drinking and prescription medications on Super Bowl Sunday.
Now a 500-page report and video has been released, showing that officers gave Russ Leach preferential treatment by not giving him a sobriety test and giving him a ride home instead of arresting him, according to KTLA. After the incident Leach was eventually charged with a DUI before retiring for unspecified medical reasons, but will not spend any time in jail. Rather, he'll wear a monitoring device and spend 30 days under house arrest.
