FOLSOM (CBS13) — Two Folsom Police Department officers are being investigated after they rolled their golf cart during a charity tournament earlier this month, requiring one of the off-duty officers to be air-lifted to a local hospital.
The incident happened during the Scott Russell Memorial Golf Tournament at Empire Ranch Golf Club in Folsom on Sept. 16. Russell was a local officer killed while on duty in 2007.
A police department official confirmed Thursday that the officers are being investigated for their conduct at the tournament but declined to give their names.
Police Chief Cynthia Renaud told the Folsom Telegraph that her department is working the District Attorney’s Office on a criminal investigation but declined to say if alcohol was involved in the incident.
