MORPHOLOGY FROM THE

EXPLOSIVE SITUATION IN AURORA

FOLLOWING THIS SCENE, INTERIM

POLICE CHIEF INSISTS OFFICERS

DID NOT PROTECT FELLOW COP NATE

MEYER WHEN HE WAS FOUND PASSED

OUT DRUNK BEHIND THE WHEEL OF

HIS PATROL CAR, BUT SHE DOES

ADMIT TO THE DEPARTMENT MADE

MISTAKES.

SHE IS PROMISING TO FIX THEM.

BRANDON MOSS HAS BROKEN

EVERY MAJOR DEVELOPMENT IN THIS

CASE SINCE WE FIRST LEARNED

ABOUT MEYER'S ACTIONS.

YOU TALK WITH THE INTERIM CHIEF

TODAY?

NOT ONLY DID SHE SAY THAT

HER DEPARTMENT HAD MISHANDLED

HER CASE, SHE ALSO ANNOUNCED A

NEW INTERNAL AFFAIRS

INVESTIGATION TARGETING THE

DEPUTY CHIEF WHO MADE THE

DECISION TO HANDLE THE MEYER

CASE AS A MEDICAL ISSUE, NOT AS

A DUI.

AS SOON AS HE ANNOUNCED THAT,

ANOTHER TWIST.

Reporter: WORDS FROM

AURORA'S INTERIM CHIEF TODAY

FAULTING HER AGENCY'S HANDLING

OF NATE MEYER, WHO WAS FOUND

DRUNK ON DUTY IT BEHIND THE

WHEEL OF A PARKED CAR.

DEPUTIES SAID THIS SMELLED

ALCOHOL AND CALLED IT A MEDICAL

CASE SAID THERE WAS NO DUI

INVESTIGATION OR ARREST AND

THAT MEYER KEPT HIS JOB.

THAT CASE IN MY OPINION

SHOULD HAVE BEEN HANDLED AS A

DUI.

Reporter: WILSON ANNOUNCED

SHE WAS OPENING AND I A

INVESTIGATION INTO O'KEEFE'S

DECISIONS.

THAT DID NOT LAST LONG.

AN HOUR LATER, O'KEEFE

ANNOUNCED HE WAS RETIRING AS OF

TOMORROW.

EFFECTIVELY KILLING THE

INVESTIGATION.

DO YOU THINK THERE IS

PROFESSIONAL COURTESY?

I DON'T BELIEVE SO.

I KNOW THAT PEOPLE ARE PROBABLY

DISAGREEING WITH ME.

Reporter: IT BEGINS TO LOOK

AND FEEL LIKE SOMETHING ELSE.

ONE OF THOSE DISAGREEING,

DISTRICT ATTORNEY GEORGE

BROCKLEY SAYS HE BLEARILY

BELIEVES OFFICERS TRIED TO

SHIELD MEYER FROM A DUI CHARGE.

DID NATE MEYER BEAT THE

SYSTEM?

HE DID.

Reporter: THANKS TO?

FELLOW OFFICERS?

IS, THAT'S IT.

Reporter: WILSON SAYS IN HIS

FUTURE OFFICER SUSPECTED OF DUI

A CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION WILL

LAUNCH IMMEDIATELY AND THE

CHIEF WILL BE NOTIFIED.

IN SIMILAR SITUATIONS, OTHER

POLICE DEPARTMENTS WILL BE

ASKED TO COME IN AND HELP WITH

THE INVESTIGATION.

THIS HAS DESTROYED OUR

REPUTATION AND WE ARE NOT GOING

TO LET ONE PERSON DESTROY THAT.

NATE MEYER WAS DEMOTED BUT

HE IS STILL WITH THE AURORA

POLICE DEPARTMENT.

AURORA CITY MANAGER ALSO
