No, the police arrest and send the report to the DA, who makes the decision on charges.

It was up to the police to charge him in the first place tho was it not?
I understand they might not have the power to drop them once they have been charged tho
But yes the chief does sound reasonable and he will work directly with the DA I am sure to get this taken care of it it can be fixed with 50 dollars
