Guam - Committee Chair on Public Safety Senator Adolpho Palacios says he's satisfied with the Governor's verbal reprimand against Chief of Police Paul Suba.  Suba was issued a warning letter for his actions during an incident in which he rammed the vehicle of a suspect he believed was involved in a highspeed pursuit. The chief chased down the suspects in an unmarked police vehicle.

"I'm sure that the governor has a way of all the good things that the chief has accomplished and that's the same thing that you apply when you're dealing with a regular police officer," he said.  "You consider the time for the officer, the history, the contributions and so forth and you weight that and see if something is learned from that."

The lawmaker said he hadn't seen the investigation findings and added he didn't need to. Suba apologized for his actions.
