The complaint reviewed by Courthouse News Service stated that Alvarado then began chasing the teen in the neighborhood across the street from the school in his patrol car. He lost sight of the teen in that neighborhood and returned to the location of the fight. At that time Alvarado called dispatch.
"Dispatch recordings reflect that his supervisor directed Alvarado to stay with the other boy and to 'not do any big search over there,'" the complaint stated. "Ignoring his supervisor's orders to 'stay with the victim and get the information from him,' Alvarado placed the second boy into the patrol car and sped into the neighborhood to search for [the dead teen]."
According to Courthouse News Service, the mother of the dead teen alleged that Daniel Alvarado, the school district's police officer in question, had been reprimanded 16 times over the last four years; suspended without pay five times; and "recommended for termination for insubordination."
