KALAMAZOO Chief Jeffrey Hadley may be reprimanded for failing to immediately report he was involved in a traffic accident.

Hadley apparently wasn't aware of the policy, but should have been and ignorance is no excuse. Hadley says he slid into the back of an SUV on icy Drake Road last Saturday evening in his city-owned car, causing minor damage, but no injuries.

He took down the pertinent insurance information, told the SUV driver he would be contacted by Public Safety and waited until the next day to report it to the shift commander, suggesting that he be given a citation.

No citation was written at that time.

Hadley expects to be given a written reprimand and a citation, which is what would happen to any other officer in the same situation. An investigation has been ordered by the city manager.
