Forgetful LAPD chief denies, then admits buying $6k horse from his daughter for police dept.

LAPD Chief Charlie Beck angrily denied having any involvement whatsoever in the purchase of a $6,000 horse from his daughter for the LAPD's equestrian unit. But when the LA Times published documents with Beck's signature approving the deal, the chief suddenly “realized” it.

The Times reports that the Board of Police Commissioners President Steve Soboroff "did not believe the chief intentionally misled officials so his daughter could profit."
