Four Manhattan Beach Cops Fired for Concealing an Alleged Hit and Run

According to reliable sources, 4 seasoned Manhattan Beach cops  will be fired for their roles in the alleged concealment of  a hit and run involving an off-duty policeman.  Informants said the MBPD officers – Richard William Hatten, Kristopher Thompson, Eric Eccles and Bryan Klatt – were given the boot personally by Police Chief Rod Uyeda late last week. The law says they have a right to appeal the decision, and remain on paid administrative leave. Uyeda declined comment when contacted Tuesday, but said in a prepared statement that the terminations have taken place. The Chief did not name the officers. “As for the issue of the discipline that the involved officers will face, pursuant to laws pertaining to personnel matters, my office cannot comment on the action”
