Rejection of case in sheriff’s deputy brawl

    Pro­sec­utors have de­clined to file crim­in­al charges against a group of Los Angeles County sher­iff’s depu­ties ac­cused of as­sault­ing three fel­low depu­ties at a Christ­mas party last year.

    The vi­ol­ence that broke out at a de­part­ment party in Mon­te­bello drew wide­spread at­ten­tion after those in­volved were de­scribed as be­ing part of an ag­gress­ive depu­ties’ clique at Men’s Cent­ral Jail known to throw gang-like hand signs.
