LAPD/D.A. Feud Derails Dr. Murray Arraignment

2/5/2010 10:11 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The scheduled arraignment Friday for Dr. Conrad Murray in the death of Michael Jackson will not take place as scheduled because of the feud between the L.A. County D.A. and the LAPD over Dr. Murray's surrender.

Dr. Conrad Murray and Michael Jackson

As we first reported, the LAPD was bent out of shape -- and that is an understatement -- because the D.A. had kept cops in the dark and had been working with Dr. Murray's lawyers to arrange a voluntary surrender in court at the time of the arraignment.

The plan as of Thursday afternoon: Dr. Murray's lawyers would drive him to the L.A. County Sheriff's Office at the Airport Courthouse in L.A. at 5:30 AM Friday, along with a bail bondsman. Dr. Murray would be booked, post bail and then walk into court without handcuffs or chains.

We're told the LAPD so vehemently objected to the plan ... the D.A. finally backed off. The LAPD wants to arrest Dr. Murray, book him and bring him into court in handcuffs and/or chains -- something that is fairly standard in homicide cases.

The plan has fallen apart and we're told ... as of now ... there will be no arraignment tomorrow.

It's starting out shaky, folks.

Sounds to me like the LAPD just wants to grandstand on this one. The cheaper and easy step for the DA is just work out an agreement. Involuntary Manslaughter is just what it sounds like its an accidental death caused by unintential actions. It leads to probation 9 times outta 10 in most cases so people getting their pants in a wad should chill out.. Even if he wasnt MJs MD he probably would get a slap on the wrist its a felony conviction and as an MD would cost him his license for the time being to practice medicine but the most he's likely to get is 3-5yrs probation

When Murray does interviews after the fact, be rest assured he won't look like some glassy eyed doped up goofball like Wacko. Oh, they abused me, look at all my bruises.

Another source says that Murray's lawyers intend to show up to surrender anyway, and that even if the authorities don't honor the agreement, they'll just show up and address the press.

Michael Jackson's doctor plans to surrender to authorities Friday, regardless of whether prosecutors had filed a case against him, a spokeswoman said Thursday.

Maybe he was thinking about the plea deal as he sat outside MJ's crypt today.

Can we say "reality show"? I'm sure it will be part of it.

Los Angeles PD is disgusting and attempting to put themselves in a position of making a lot of money off interviews and books like the rest of the world. There is no reason to publicly flog this man (no matter what happened to Michael Jackson while under his care) but to simply let him discreetly (just like another who would be accused of a crime) surrender.

They were in it for the money    

If nothing happens by Friday, the news just said the Dr. will fly back to Houston. So who's wasting money? I have NEVER seen anything like this in my life and I'm a pretty old coot. Hammering out a deal almost sounds like someone is gonna talk, pleading not guilty also raises eyebrows if you have them.

Danm, I picked the wrong week to start a diet!
