Authorities, as advocates of the law, are expected to comply with it. If they failed to do so, they may also be required to undergo the litigation process and to face the penalties of their violation.
A Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy identified as Michael Anthony Grundy, 45, recently pleaded not guilty to two felony counts which are related to hit-and-run and DUI.
The charges stemmed from an accident which occurred last January.
The deputy collided with another car along an intersection. The other motorist was injured as a result of the incident. Instead of helping the motorist, he chose to flee the accident area.
Fortunately, he was seen by to other deputies. California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers then arrested him.
He is being accused of driving while under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
