Our latest batch

Last week the Chronicle incorrectly reported that 18-year-old Daniel Rocha was arrested as recently as May 31, for stealing a wallet from an elderly woman at an area McDonald's. (See, "Rocha's Death Involved Taser Confusion," News, June 17.) In fact, at the time of his death, there was a warrant out for Rocha's arrest for the May 31 wallet snatching. Rocha was already on probation for an August 2004 burglary and for a February charge of marijuana possession. In the same story, the Chronicle reported that Sgt. Don Doyle's leg was broken during the June 9 scuffle with Rocha. Since then, we have learned that Doyle's leg was not broken but was instead severely bruised. We regret the errors.
