Police Study Charge
Thai Accident Squad Car Coasted Into Man The Police Department is inves tigating a citizen’s complaint that an Accident Investigation Unit car coasted into him at Wisconsin ave nue and O streets N.W. The complaint was filed with the Commissioners by William M. i Scriven. Treasury Department em ploye of 3158 O street N.W., who accused Sergt. Carl G. Darnall of the seventh precinct of "unprovoked assault.” Inspector Lloyd E. Kelly told re porters he has interviewed 11 citi zens who witnessed the incident and plans to talk to three others. So far. he said, the witnesses have not substantiated Mr. Scriven’s story. The inspector added, however, that when the investigation is com pleted he may recommend referral of the case to the Corporation Counsel’s office. It will be up to that office, then, to determine whether there is sufficient evidence to file charges against Sergt. Dar- i nail with the Police Trial Board. Mr. Scriven complained in his sworn affidavit that the police car struck him as he was reaching the curb after 11 p.m. on August 16. Witnesses signed statements say ing Sergt. Darnall asked bystanders to get on the sidewalk so he could release the brake to allow the police car to drift to the curb. It was parked about 4 feet from the the curb while AIU men were investigat ing a serious accident in the vicinity. Inspector Kelly said he talked with Mr. Scriven on August 27 and up to that time, the complainant told him, he had not received medical treat ment. Mr. Scriven said he had no marks or bruises on his leg, where he complained the car hit him.
