PHILLIP YBARRA- "We have certain tactics that we deploy, during traffic pursuits for more high-risk, felony stops. This particular maneuver will be reviewed. It's not my position to say whether it was right or wrong. A report will be made, and it will be channeled up through the chain of command and they will make that decision....I can't answer that, because every situation is different. Every set of circumstances is different nothing is exactly the way we want to do it...it's an imperfect situation and we cannot always have a perfect result.") (SOT-LUC- "Well it happened pretty fast, I was driving. I believe the intersection Melrose and Highland. And I was pretty much already going into the intersection and I just saw her come and her car got so close to me I just thought she had maybe ran a red so I so I sort of sped up so maybe she wouldn't hit me and swerved to the right.
