OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - A federal judge in California ruled an Oakland police officer who covered his nameplate during a November Occupy protest, seriously violated court-approved conduct standards for the city's police department.
U.S. District Judge Thelton Henderson issued the ruling against officer John Hargraves and Oakland police Lt. Clifford Wong. Wong is accused of failing to report Hargraves' actions to the
department's internal affairs unit.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Henderson has not decided whether to hold contempt proceedings against the officers.
