Man Arrested In Los Angeles Recruits Crash Is Released

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Authorities have released from custody a young man who was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder of a peace officer after the SUV he was driving veered into the wrong lane and crashed into Los Angeles County law enforcement recruits on a training run, injuring 25. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department says 22-year-old Nicholas Joseph Gutierrez was released Thursday night because the investigation’s complexity requires analysis of additional evidence and interviews. NBC4LA broadcast footage of Gutierrez arriving home and reported that he didn’t answer any questions. The SUV struck the recruits early Wednesday in the suburban Whittier area, where a sheriff’s academy facility is located.
