BAKERSFIELD - Bakersfield City Manager Alan Tandy will not face criminal charges for an incident on a hockey rink, the Kern County District Attorney's office announced Thursday.
The DA's office finished their investigation into the incident on June 8, where Tandy allegedly brought a hockey stick down on the head of another hockey player at the Ice Center after a league game.
They said the video of the incident , reports and evidence was not enough for a jury to convict Tandy of any assault.
The DA searched Tandy's home to seize two hockey sticks, a jersey and a black hockey mask.
The DA's office conducted the investigation, instead of the Bakersfield Police Department, because of conflict of interest.
