Eureka, Calif., Police Chief Andrew Mills discusses police handling of a contact with a man who later was arrested in the slaying of a priest in Eureka, Calif. Gary Bullock was arrested by sheriff's deputies on a disorderly conduct charge, and held for eight hours, then released New Year's Eve. A city police officer talked to him a couple hours later outside the church, and determined he was sober, not mentally incompetent to be in public, had committed no crimes, and directed him to a homeless shelter. The next day Bullock was arrested in the slaying of the Rev. Eric Freed. (AP Photo/Jeff Barnard) less
