Conrad Murray Will Show in Court No Matter What

2/5/2010 12:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray Conrad Murray's people just told TMZ they are ticked off that they are caught in the middle of a tug of war between the LAPD and the L.A. County D.A. -- and they will show up in court at 1:30 PM today to surrender ... whether charges are filed or not.

As we first reported, a feud is raging between the LAPD and the D.A. -- the D.A. wants Murray to surrender and the LAPD wants him arrested before coming to court ... on charges of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson.

We reported last night that things were so bad between the two agencies that the D.A. pulled the plug on today's arraignment.

But Miranda Sevcik, the rep for Dr. Murray's lawyer Ed Chernoff, tells TMZ "We are stuck in the middle of something we can't control." Sevcik, who called the feuding "insane," says "Dr. Murray will wait for a call as to where and when he will surrender" and adds if the call doesn't come he will show up anyway at 1:30 PM.

The problem for Dr. Murray -- if the D.A. doesn't file charges this morning, there's nothing to surrender to...

Stay tuned ...

Clearly there is a significant difference to whether Dr. Murray is arrested or surrenders. What is it?

Now look at this the LAPD and LA county are setting up a brilliant defense strategy for Murray's
Lawyers. Yes you are regardless if it is an accident or if you realize you are doing it, which I am
starting to doubt.

Murray's team make a statement that they are caught in the middle so his camp decides to show up in case he is arrested. Meanwhile the authorities have stated they are fighting to determine who does what. Of course the lawyers will be using this fiasco in his defense. Of course in the back of the mind of any jury this will be remembered. It will go like this. This was a witch hunt after Dr. Murray. The LAPD knew they did not have a case this is why they could not get organized and arrest my client. The idea is to make Murray look like he was innocent and has always been trying
to do the right thing even while the LAPD was threatening to arrest him. Think that will not impact
his defense, think again.

Good job LAPD and LA county looks like your giving Murray some good ammunition. State Attorney please step in on this are this case is going to tainted all the way to the court room.
The authorities are shooting themselves in the foot. "STUPID"

Irene, I don't know because I'm not familiar at all with the US law system, but I can figure out that they kept the autopsy report confidential because Michael's case was considered as a homicide from the beginning, followed by an investigation This might be a difference to, e.g., Brittany Murphy. Maybe they didn't want to supply Murray's lawyers with ”munition", which could help them to prepare the defense?
If so, I'd be fine with not releasing the autopsy report...

What a gift to Dr. Murray. This ego play will only open a door to a wide hallway of reasonable doubt but exposes that ego's rule proper procedures. After from what we hear was a great job of investigating the Police now have ruined their legal objectivity. For a photo op and maybe a few extra hours of confinement they could tilt the jury pool belief that they are playing fair. Those that don't learn from history are required to repeat it.

TMZ ARE PEOPLE ALLOWED TO PUT IN A COMPLAINT CONCERNING THE WAY THY ARE STOPPING THE LAPD FROM ARRESTING MURRAY? OR IS THERE ANYONE OUT THERE THAT KNOWS THE ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION?

So what the courts are closed. That has nothing to do with being arrested and going before a judge. People are arrested and go before judges 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Courts being closed or open has nothing to do with it.

12. PROOF IT'S A HOAX!!!

The courts are CLOSED today..it's a furlough day! http://www.dpa.ca.gov/personnel-policies/furloughs/list-of-furlough-fridays.htm

Murray has to 'surrender' because if it's a hoax the police can't arrest him legally!!!!

Rock on!!!
