Attorney Pat Mika, who represented 19-year-old Hooters waitress Illysa Medina after she was accused of serving a visibly intoxicated patron, said the CBI investigation of Metro VNI was nothing more than a whitewashing.
Mika said the investigation, which cleared the two undercover detectives involved in the case of wrongdoing, could not be classified as complete.
“They never talked to the victim of this false accusation and that is Illysa Medina. Nor they did they ever talk to the lawyer who represented her. They got nothing but self-serving information from the police officers who were there trying to preserve their careers, their reputations and their jobs.”
According to the CBI report, the only people interviewed were: VNI detectives Jeff True and Greg Young, police Sgt. Bret Poole, city prosecutors Elliot Fladen, Anthony Moore and Jarrett Benson, sheriff Bureau Chief Joe Breister, city spokesman John Leavitt and private attorney Vince Linden, who represented Hooters in front of the city’s liquor board.
