SAN FRANCISCO – King City officials will be investigating accusations that the city’s police chief showed up at crime scenes while intoxicated.

Meeting in a closed session Wednesday, the City Council moved to open an investigation into allegations that Chief Nick Baldiviez drove up to the scenes in his police vehicle while under the influence.

The decision comes after the accusations surfaced in a letter from the King City Police Officers Association. The letter claims that Baldiviez drove several times to crime scenes while under the influence, including a double homicide in 2009

The chief’s attorney, Andrew Liu, denied the allegations, terming them “an agenda-driven action of the few.”

City officials say no decision has been made as to whether to place Baldiviez on leave.
