In her statement Sunday, Mackey had also said the issuance of the arrest warrant "illustrates the complete bias of the sheriff's office, the law enforcement agency charged with investigating the allegations against Mr. Bryant and searching for the truth."
Hoy denied Mackey's assertions of bias, saying, "I guess I would have to know her definition of bias. She needs to be more to the point on what bias means."
Craig Silverman, former Denver chief deputy district attorney, said identifying Bryant as a suspect before Hurlbert decides whether to file charges was unfair and unnecessary.
"It is foolish to arrest somebody like Kobe Bryant and run his name through the mud if the district attorney is not going to follow up and file charges," Silverman said. "It serves no legitimate purpose. It signals that law enforcement is out to hurt Kobe Bryant."
He said it would be appropriate to arrest suspects in cases where they are likely to flee or commit new crimes. But that isn't the case with Bryant, he said.
Funny the thing's Cities will do to try and stop a champion. Sacramento poisons Kobe's Burger in a Hotel room to try and keep him from playing and now it seems Denver is trying to put Kobe in Jail to keep him from playing. I'm telling you guys, the Sheriff must be a Nuggets fan.
