LAPD's Response on City Attorney's Decision
Los Angeles: Today's decision by City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo that he will not file criminal charges against Minister Tony Muhammad and two of his security guards, now allows the LAPD to finalize its use of force administrative review of the August 25, 2005 incident.
The Department submitted its completed criminal request for filing of charges to the City Attorney's office on October 4, 2005. The Department's internal investigation into the actions of the two involved officers was completed in May. During that investigation 62 officers and 11 witnesses were interviewed.
With today's decision, the Department will now determine if force used during the incident was in or out of policy.
