City Sits on Miles Report

Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl says the city will not yet close its investigation of the alleged police assault of CAPA high school senior Jordan Miles this January.

The mayor says the Office of Municipal Investigations will wait until a federal grand jury inquiry is complete.

"It would be inappropriate for me or us to take any action before the federal authorities complete their investigation," says Ravenstahl.

Police officers Richard Ewing, David Sisak and Michael Saldutte remain on paid leave.

City Councilman Patrick Dowd says the city is unnecessarily holding back its findings on the case. He says it's an "off chance" that the federal investigation will find anything different than the OMI report.
