Feud Between LAPD & D.A. Deepens Over Murray

2/4/2010 5:19 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Conrad MurrayScratch disagreement ... a feud has erupted over the Dr. Conrad Murray case between the LAPD and the Los Angeles County District Attorney ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

As we first reported, the LAPD was ticked that the D.A. kept top cops out of the loop on the subject of charging Dr. Conrad Murray in the death of Michael Jackson.

We told you that yesterday members of the D.A.'s Office met with the LAPD and everyone agreed that cops would take Dr. Murray into custody, book him and deliver him to the courthouse for his arraignment on involuntary manslaughter charges.

But this morning, the feud has intensified and it's now at the top levels of both the LAPD and D.A. The fight is bitter and ultimately the D.A. could do an end around the PD and just have Dr. Murray show up in court tomorrow.

One law enforcement source tells TMZ relations between the D.A. and the LAPD have "totally deteriorated" over the Murray case.

UPDATE: 2:32 PM PT. One of Dr. Murray's lawyers, Ed Chernoff, just posted on his website that he's working with the D.A. to turn his client in after the case is filed. Chernoff said, "An arrest of Dr. Murray would be a waste of money, time and resources." The LAPD begs to differ.

If LAPD doesn't leak everything to the tabloids, maybe the DA will keep them informed...

And thats the truth    

I personally think there is too much testosterone floating around both entities. If the departments keep in fighting, they are never going to get anything accomplished and Murray may walk. It that happens, both departments will get exactly what they desire..... attention.

BTW: Chef Kooky, you are wonderful and you make me laugh......love ya!

Just hope the DA don't fluff up all the hard work of the LAPD after all the work they've done.

Similar 'Dr/Patient' thing gone on over here - Dr accused of manslaughter, but he's gone back to his own country, was given a fine there for killing the patient in this country - and because of that, now cannot be extradited to the UK to stand charge....Totally idiotic law...

* The whole world knows you can't trust the LAPD. What was their clandestine meeting with Randy J. at Forest Lawn on July 7 all about? Why wasn't the crime scene protected instead of letting the Jackson clan and who knows who else traipse through it on May 26/27? Why? why?, and so on and so forth.
