Los Angeles Police Chief Daryl F. Gates said Wednesday that Mayor Tom Bradley was manipulated into writing a "dumb letter" last week asking the Police Commission to investigate reports of police improprieties in the defense of four officers charged in the "39th and Dalton" case. In an interview, Gates said Bradley requested the investigation "to get the heat off himself" because he had been traveling in Europe last month and "didn't know what was going on."

A veteran Los Angeles police sergeant, while on duty, spent weeks this summer working as an investigator for four officers charged with vandalism in the "39th and Dalton" case, and said he did so with the approval of his Police Department supervisors.
