Judge OKs release of medical records for Petaluma police officer accused of DUI

Medical records of a Petaluma police officer suspected of being drunk when he crashed a motorized scooter in October during a department golf tournament will be released to prosecutors.

A judge ruled Thursday that relevant files from Officer Ryan McGreevy's treatment at Petaluma Valley Hospital and Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital will be turned over.

Prosecutors want the records to see if blood test results or the officer's statements to doctors will shed light on his condition. No sobriety testing was done at the time.

The case was referred to the California Highway Patrol for investigation a month later.

McGreevy was charged in January with driving under the influence of alcohol. The officer, who was recognized in 2007 for his work by Mothers Against Drunk Driving, has pleaded not guilty and remains on active duty.
