Wow, I seriously doubt this I have dealt with the chief of police and never had reason to believe he had a drinking problem. I'm pretty good at noticing this. If however he did I believe its possible he was off duty and showed up because of the urgency of the matter. How many of you would be home bbqing and get called in after having a beer would go? Well perhaps he had a beer in one of these off duty moments... he would have been crucified forr not showing up as well as for showing up after a beer... yet he responded because he needed to know and he cared about his community. I have no clue if he responded after one of those after work cold ones or not.

Duuh dude... you can't say he doesn't work he had to in order to be promoted to his position. He has to have a good track record. Did you give give him a breath-alyzer test? You can't say someone is drunk wrecklessly. Hersay. Its irresponsible. He is innocent till proven guilty this is america. Unless he has a BAC test nobody can say a word. Maybe he was tired. I don't know if you work 70-80 hours a week in a high stress job, or if you even work... but maybe you were up late partying 5 nights in a row while also going through a divorce but but how aware would you be? Well that would give you an idea the amoun of stress combined with sleeplessness the police are under. Divorce is one of the highest stressors that's why I chose it to compare the work stress.

ENJOY your vacation Nick paid by the city of king. You need it because you never really get one with your demands from the department. It must be rough being criticized by thankless thugs who can't even spell thinking they know better than you. Go far from this place get massages and have lots of quiet time to mellow out exercise eat good food and be with people that appreciate you. Hope to see you back at the PD refreshed. Truth will persevere!

Saw Nick today. He just got home from shooting his deer rifle and getting ready to go hunting with Nessen. He looks great and still has that smile and quick wit. I asked him if he reads this blog and he compared it to watching roller derby and said he has better things to do. If hes stressed out you would never guess it. He's getting fat though. I wish him well hes a great neighbor.

Awesome! He is a good guy. I have told him before what I think of all this. He is doing a great job and he deserves a break from the nonsense. It is a witch hunt. It makes the parents of gang bangers feel powerful.its like the parent with the smart mouth kid blaming the teachers and principals. Time to look a little closer to home. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Hes last of the kcpd OG's except miller. preety bad when your own click turns on you though

All of u defending the chief are probably the same brown nosers defending the pd,IM not saying valdivies is a bad person,I know him to and also think he is a good person but I dont think he is a good chief i have spoke to some officers who really care about our town and wats going on right now with all these shootings and they also have respect for their chief and say he is a good person but could be a better chief so dont try to kiss his ass and care about your community a little more baldivies needs to man up and admit he is an alcaholic and this job is not sutted for him so we can move on and bring someone who can do things right so dont call these officers liers when they are just tring to do the right thing .

I don't see Nick as an alcoholic. I have no patience for alcoholics. I agree there is a huge problem with alcoholism in this community and little. League coaches drinking and doing drugs, the valley bears, some firefighters, the drinking at st johns, at community fundraisers, the gang problem is because the parents are drinking or even on drugs they don't. Know what their kids are doing. Drunks in the park, the PTA. This town is Run by drunks at some level. The City Manager isn't a drinker and I have never seen the mayor drunk. The microcosims of the community are run by drunks. That said I have no reason to believe Nick is a drunk. If anyone has a problem with alcohol or drugs I suggest they go to a drug and alcohol program there are NA and AA programs here and even a christian based program at the baptist church that is family centered. We need to clean up this town. then we can truey know what's going on with a clear mind.

Some people can pull it off pretty good. If he has a problem with alcohol he needs to use some FMLA time to handle it and come back to work. Not get fired its an illness. If he has a medical problem he needs time to handle it like anyone else its his livelihood. And we can't be irresponsible saying he is showing up drunk unless he takes a BAC test like anyone else in america. You can't go by how he acted cause he may have been exhasted. We have to be fair. what would we want from our employer if we had this problem. If you live here either you have an addiction or have people close to you in that situation. I am willing to bet there's more alcoholics here than in russia.if you are wrong then you are ruining this mans life. I only know nick at a professional level.

If the police see him responding drunk they need to report it at the time so it can be investigated. Enough said.

Everything started with these lame ass gangster cops. Off. Perez has family in a gang and his own brother sell weed. So who knows if he is giving out information to these gangsters. Off. Aguayo we all know that he is affiliated with norteno gang after being seen of duty in a norteno memorial at st johns. What was he doing there if he was off duty and besides he dont know the family hes from soledad. If you would see his new girlfriend and her my space she is always sporting red. Should make her a nortena. I say this cause every person that wears blue these cops always harassing and registering them as a sureno. Off. Mottu jr well havent seen that fool lately. But yeah that dude is gangster and his tattoo's say it all, especially that red star. Come on Baldiviez are you blind? Fire these fools and youll see a difference or you might be the one to go out just for backing them up.so if your crooked or not you might go out for staying quiet. Off. Robles that fool is funny always dogging and making mad faces, you aint scaring anybody you fat pig, your brother always been afiliated with nortenos and your people of choice are nortenos. Off. baker how more stupider can you be. They should fire you for that, Baker is a scrap! ha ha ha... My money is on miller. good job... Hes never taken sides and of course he aint affiliated with any gang. Monica from the city hall, people dont trust her. Dont leave your name or number she'll rat you guys out with the pigs and tell them who wants to see the investigator. Any further questions ask aguayo's ex wife i believe she'll rat him out. looks like aguayo wasnt doing his job instead he was picking up on girls like that kfc chick he has now. How you meet her if your supposeably on duty? Your from soledad and married. Fat ass...

Justice.. statute of limitations is different in each case you mentioned. Crimes against children are handled different than a DUI. Baker.. he shouldn't have posed. For that picture. I agree. I sorta question him. Perez is a good person. His family is all good people. I have a couple douche bags in my family. They don't effect my personal life. They don't make me who I am. I would be hate to be judged by people I have nothing to do with except by blood. I know he has a big family. And the bigger the more distant those people become. The family he is close to is all good people. Then officer Mottu, he is someone I have known for years since before he became a police officer. I know some of His family. I don't know why he has a star. I do know he is a fabulous person. Monica is a dear friend of mine and I know she is wonderful and as good as a person can get. She doesn't need to be rumored about. I have known her for years.. you. Don't need to slam good people. I have known all those people at least 15 years. You really need to leave things to the investigators.
