FORMER AZ POLICE CHIEF DENIES HE'S ON SCAMERA PAYROLL
- In what looks to be a major scandal brewing, former Paradise Valley Police Chief John Wintersteen has denied to the Associated Press that he was paid by Redflex and Scottsdaleâ€™s ATS to file a petition on their behalf. The petition, which shows Wintersteen as the filer, would change Arizona law to subvert due process in favor of the scamera companies. It would eliminate the service of process requirement for photo radar and red light camera tickets. In other words, Arizona motorists wouldnâ€™t have to be served scamera tickets in person to make them valid legally. The petition was filed with the Arizona Supreme Court by the law firm Quarles and Brady.
