Full story: DUI charges against Phil Campbell dropped

"It is clear that Sergeant Ray Fernandez utilized bad judgment when he failed to remove himself from this investigation. He should have assigned it to an officer who did not have a personal connection to the tip. This would have avoided any potential appearance of impropriety. The Tampa Police Department is working closely with the FBI on the official investigation into this entire incident. When the investigation is complete, the department will then speak to the specifics of the case."
