City denies PRA request

Tuesday, July 22, 2014 — The city of Susanville has denied a Public Records Act request from the Lassen County Times regarding information on former Susanville Police Officer Michael Milito who allegedly was involved in a 2012 tasing incident involving Jordan Drury.

Earlier this month the newspaper requested a copy of the investigative report into Milito’s conduct during the Drury incident requested by Susanville Police Chief Tom Downing and the settlement agreement made between the city and Drury after he dismissed a $1 million lawsuit regarding the incident.

Milito allegedly tased Drury repeatedly outside a Gay Street party in May 2012. Drury was taken into custody and charged with felony resisting arrest. Within hours, then Lassen County District Attorney Robert Burns ordered Drury’s release from custody and rejected the felony charge.

Shortly after the Gay Street incident, newly appointed police chief Tom Downing placed an officer — believed to be Milito — on administrative leave and asked for an investigation into the incident by an independent agency.
