RENO, Nev. (KRNV & -- It looks like there's deal in the works to settle a $330,000 lawsuit filed by Reno Deputy Police Chief Dave Evans against the City.

Evans was placed on paid administrative leave more than a year ago after he was recorded by another officer allegedly advising that officer on how to shift the blame during an internal affairs investigation.

Evans was placed on leave Aug. 10, 2012 and has been collecting his six figure salary every since.

News 4 is told tonight the Reno City Council will decide next Wednesday whether to approve a settlement with Evans. There is no word on the dollar amount involved.

What about the Lt who was thrown under the bus by Evans. The one he told to be "BOMBED". How is she doing?

tonysam, his severance is his retirement or is he forgoing that in lieu of? If he's forgoing his City Paid retirement, then he can have the severance, but he shouldn't be entitled to both. He was telling someone how to get around the law and lie about it. Not very smart.

So do people think the case should actually go to trial and cost the taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars, perhaps even a million dollars than pay out an insurance settlement that is far cheaper? People, you are NOT the deputy police chief's "employer," contrary to widespread propaganda.

The "settlement" is a severance package, the same as many employees get in the private sector when they are laid off or even fired. It's time for people to get over their fake outrage.

Who said he's going to move to another state? He'll just get a job with the Sheriff's office. That's generally what happens. I think the City of Reno really needs a lesson in just whose money they're dealing with.

Only in the City of Reno, a Chief Officer can tell an employee of lesser rank how to beat the system, collect his salary of 200k plus for more than a year and then settle for monetary gain! It stinks! Pay close attention to who runs for Mayor in the next election and remember which council member (JS) stood up and asked questions when needed. Reno government is corrupt!

Let me see if I understand this correctly, He gets recorded giving lessons on "how to" break the law or at least 'tip the scale' in his direction, and his punishment has been to get paid while staying home relaxing. Now, to end his punishment he gets a reward in the form of a settlement. Then he can move to another state and get another job in another police dept.. Did I get it just about right???? How Pathetic he is and how ashamed his family must be.
