Montagnino releases draft report on death of Darryl Mount.

 Saratoga Springs Commissioner of Public Safety James Montagnino recently released a draft report on the circumstances surrounding the 2014 death of Darryl Mount Jr. following a police chase in 2013. The draft comes less than two weeks after Saratoga County District Attorney Karen Heggen advised Mayor Ron Kim she was declining to send the case to a grand jury. Extensive quotes from the report can be found in this Saratogian article. The report does not find evidence of misconduct by field officers but does say that then-Police Chief Gregory Veitch violated General Order #25, which mandated an internal affairs investigation whenever a complaint was lodged alleging serious police misconduct.
