They could have started a DUI investigation, authorities said. Instead, two Los Angeles police officers drove a motorist home, told him to go to sleep and called it a night, prosecutors allege. Oh, and then they lied on their report, according to a drunk driving lawyer in Fresno.

Now officers Rene Marcial Ponce, 39, and Irene Gomez, 38, are facing formal allegations of filing a false police report and “conspiracy to commit an act injurious to the public,” according to the DA’s office. The two have pleaded not guilty.

Prosecutors say that on Oct. 26, 2014, the duo responded to a collision in the 3000 block of East Side Boulevard in Boyle Heights.
