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.

Big Mouth Joe will TELL ALL    

33. * 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.

ET has the latest...

On the heels of the news that he will be turning himself in on Friday, ET breaks news that Dr. Conrad Murray visited the mausoleum where Michael Jackson has been laid to rest.

Looking casual in jeans and a sweater, the former personal physician to Jackson was spotted alone outside the building at Forest Lawn Memorial Parks & Mortuaries in Glendale, CA. He left after only staying for a few moments and after never going in.

Watch Thursday's ET to see the exclusive footage.

Wonder what the J fam thinks of this. Also wonder why they all got quiet lately.

Oh this is just friggin great. The two groups that are suppose to be building a tight case is now at each others throats. Well don't this just look grand (not). So this will be Murry's defense, you know the ole divide and concur thing. Makes me want to spit nails.

How comforting to know that show biz and the craving for that 15-minutes extends to the bowels of the LAPD and DA's office.

This "arrest" is as bogus a show as the rest of the "script" which has has been performed since June 25, 2009.

ARE YOU TO HAVE US REALLY BELIEVE THAT A "REAL" TRIAL WILL UNFOLD AFTER ALL THIS TIME HAS ELAPSED IN REACTING TO THE MURDER/MANSLAUGHTER OF ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS FIGURES OF OUR TIME, WHEN THE PRIMARY CULPRIT AND HIS DEED HAS BEEN ADMITTINGLY KNOWN SINCE IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE "CRIME" WAS COMMITTED SEVEN MONTHS AGO?

Dr. Murray will get a perfunctory slap-on-the-hand, as planned from the get-go, and he will be history.

Lights, Action & Cut! It's A Wrap!

God Bless You, Michael Jackson ~ wherever you are.

BEGINNING TO WONDER WHAT THAT DA IS DOING. SOUNDS LIKE HE DON'T WANT TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE LAPD. THEY NEED TO GET THEIR CASE STRAIGHT AND STOP FIGHTING AMONG THEMSELVES IF THEY ARE. THE DA HAS TO HAVE THE LAPD ON HIS SIDE TO CHARGE MURRAY. WONDER IF THE DA IS GOING TO CHARGE MURRAY AT ALL. IF HE DON'T THEN HE NEEDS TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR HIS ACTIONS. JACKSON'S NEED TO FIND OUT WHATS GOING ON HERE SO NOTHING WON'T STOP MURRAY FROM BEING CHARGED. THE DA AND THE LAPD NEED TO STOP BECAUSE IF THEY DON'T THIS COULD END UP JUST LIKE AN OJ TRIAL. SOUNDS LIKE CALIFORNIA HAS A LOT OF PROBLEMS WITH THEIR DA'S DOING THE JOB RIGHT. HOPE THEY QUIT THIS MESS WHATEVER IT IS AND CHARGE THIS D0CTOR WITH MURDER AND NOT MANSLAUGHTER. THAT IS WHAT THE FOCUS SHOULD BE BECAUSE A HUMAN BEING'S LIFE WAS TAKEN. PLEASE STOP WHATEVER YOU ALL ARE DOING AND GET IT RIGHT BEFORE YOU ALL BLOW IT. TMZ YOU NEED TO CHANGE YOUR RESOURCES WHOEVER THEY ARE.
