Chief Beck Makes Lakers Championship Wager

Oh, gosh, it's not just Mayor Villaraigosa doing these?! A friendly wager between the two top cops of Boston and Los Angeles could mean an extra officer on L.A. streets for a night. The gentleman's bet between LAPD Chief Charlie Beck and Boston Police Commissioner Edward F. Davis will have one from the losing team's city travel to their city on vacation time and do a patrol shift. “I’m not sure where I would have Commissioner Davis work, maybe Hollywood," Beck said. Either way, Beck and Davis promise they'd eat well on the visit. If LAist Sports Editor Jimmy Brammlett is correct in his prediction -- " I just don’t see how the Lakers will get it done" -- Beck will soon be in Boston.
