I hope for his sake that it is a "big misunderstanding". Since I only know the details in this post and had not even heard about this before. I say that it does not look good for him.
I am surprised that there was not more publicity about this case?!?!?!?
Maybe because he is a cop it has been kept low profile. I know if it was one of us regular people we probably would have made national news with such a story. IMHO
