LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police say an officer killed when his patrol car crashed on the way to an emergency call was going 109 miles per hour on a city street with his lights and siren off.
Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie said Wednesday results of the investigation of Officer James Manor's death will probably change charges against 45-year-old Calvin Darling.
Darling was initially jailed on suspicion of drunken driving, but was released after his blood-alcohol content was found to be below the legal limit.
He released a statement through his lawyer saying he's thankful police found facts supporting his account that he didn't see any lights or siren before the May 7 crash.
The sheriff says Manor's speed would have been "excessive and unsafe" even if his lights and siren were on.
