L.A. County To Pay Nearly $5 Million In Deputy's Crash

May 24, 2011  | 

Los Angeles County has agreed to a $4.75-million settlement involving a sheriff's deputy who crashed his agency SUV on duty while intoxicated.

Deputy Robert Moran, who is still employed and on patrol, was convicted of drunk driving and sentenced to six months in jail. During the June 29, 2008 incident, Deputy Moran was drunk and allegedly speeding when he collided with a smaller car, seriously injuring the other driver.

What the Hell is wrong with these deputies. The LA Sheriff needs to pull his head out of his ass and start firing these AH. This is completely unacceptable and unprofessional conduct of these deputies. This kind of crap pisses me off, it gives all LEO a black eye. This behavior should not be tolerated by any agency.
