DA has report on whistleblower's beating

Source: AP

SANTA FE -- The case of a Los Alamos National Laboratory whistleblower who was beaten outside a Santa Fe topless bar is now in the hands of District Attorney Henry Valdez of Santa Fe.

He says he expects it will take about two weeks to review a police report on an investigation into the June Fifth beating of Tommy Hook.

It's up to Valdez's office to decide whether anyone will be charged in the incident.

Valdez said yesterday he couldn't discuss specifics, but said there were several witnesses to the incident.

Hook contends the beating was meant to keep him quiet.

Deputy Police Chief Eric Johnson has said the beating was unrelated to Hook's status as a whistleblower.

Police say it was an isolated incident that began when Hook struck a pedestrian in the parking lot.

It's probably too late to find the person(s) who gave Hook what he deserved. BUT, it is not too late to charge Hook with filing a false police report.

And, then Tommy can explain the lap dances to his wife.
Good old wisdom came to my mind. "Never wrestle with a pig. You'll both get dirty, but the pig likes it". But something tells me that Tommy is not a pig here.
