Judge: ATF Agent Not Negligent While Driving Through Red Light to Murder Scene

Steve Neavling 

A federal judge ruled that an ATF agent was not negligent when he drove through a red light with his emergency lights on and collided with another car at a suburban Detroit intersection in 2010, The News-Herald reports.

Saying Agent William Temple “exercised due care” while driving to a murder scene, U.S. District Judge Victoria Roberts said the driver of the other car, Lynae Neal, was more at fault for failing to yield to the unmarked law enforcement car.

Neal filed a lawsuit, claiming the agent was negligent, but acknowledged he heard a siren and still drove through the intersection.

WASHINGTON — With the Obama administration seething over the Gulf oil spill, a criminal probe may be one way to express anger against BP.

The Washington Post reports that Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. will visit the out-control spill in the Gulf on Tuesday and meet with U.S. Attorneys from Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi and state law enforcement officials from those areas.

The Los Angeles Times over the weekend reported that a team of federal prosecutors  and investigators are gathering information and exploring the possibility of launching an all out criminal probe into whether BP “skirted federal safety regulations and misled the U.S. government by saying it could quickly clean up an environmental accident.”
