Former Paradise Officer Charged With Manslaughter

PARADISE, Calif. (AP) - A former Paradise police officer has been charged with manslaughter in connection with the shooting death of an unarmed man who was suspected of drunken driving. The Chico Enterprise-Record reports Wednesday that Patrick Feaster was arraigned in court Tuesday on the charge. The charge comes two days after Paradise Police Chief Gabriela Tazzari-Dineen announced Feaster was no longer on the payroll. The chief said she couldn't say whether Feaster was fired because of state law, the newspaper reported. Feaster shot 26-year-old Andrew Thomas in November. Thomas was shot as he exited a vehicle after a rollover accident that killed his estranged wife.  Feaster's attorney, Brett Sherman, did not comment.
