Not much information here--probably because the police are embarrassed about getting their car stolen and having nothing to show for it. But they did fire a weapon at someone, and it doesn't appear to have been because they were in fear of their lives, which is the only circumstance in which they are supposed to be permitted to use deadly force. Here's an article from the P-E (the video is just an interview with reporter Brian Rokos--it contains only slightly more detail than the text article):

Since we brought you this story, the Christopher Dorner manhunt has enraptured all of our attention, but especially those of us at CopWatch IE. We will be putting something out shortly. For now, we want to bring you this update on the last story we filed here, about Ly. Gonzalez getting special treatment from his coworkers after getting caught driving drunk in a department vehicle.

Another DUI crash by RPD, and another case of the offender getting treated with kid gloves by his co-workers. The P-E has video up that has a little bit more detail than the text of the article, so we encourage our readers and supporters to go the website and watch it:
