Why would San Diego California Police Department officers try to "cover-up" a DUI accident? Why would 4 cops risk their jobs after arriving to the scene of a San Diego drunk driving collision, California DUI attorneys ask?
Isn't it interesting that there would be a 1 hour, 44 minute delay between this .09% California DUI blood test and when the accident was called in to an on-duty San Diego Police department cop, lawyers ask?
Are these the same police that try to get a California DUI blood or breath as quickly as possible, in relation to the time of driving (crash)?! Then why allow a 3 hour delay, California criminal defense lawyers wonder.
Don't these San Diego DUI investigating officers understand about dissipation of alcohol over passage of time, California criminal defense attorneys ask?
San Diego Police Department Detective J. Blackford allegedly was partying with other San Diego Police officer prior to running into a utility box sometime after midnight. You're a cop. You hit a utility box. You call it in, right? No. No reporting by the driver.
Instead, San Diego Police Department Sgt. J. Iammarino and SDPD Detective D. Caropreso, off-duty buddies, arrived. Then on-duty San Diego Police Department cops Sgt. W. Brown and Sgt. C. Tivanian come. One of them used a PAS (Preliminary Alcohol Screening Test) breath test. Obviously that test was closer in time to the time of the cop DUI crash. Conveniently those results were not reported.
Can you say cover-up? Yes, considering every single day the San Diego Police Department shows up in court and tries to get a jury or judge to consider the results of that hand-held gadget regardless of its lack of reliability or trustworthiness.
It took a motion by the San Diego City Attorney's Office, which prosecutes California DUI cases, to try to get a court order for the PAS results which are part of some allegedly confidential internal police investigation. Uh oh.
