Though a special citizens committee found few faults with the actual attempted arrest, it does say undercover drug agents put the public at risk two years ago when an attempted arrest turned fatal in St. Louis County. The St. Louis County Council appointed the citizens committee to review what happened June 12th, 2000, on the parking lot of a Jack in the Box restaurant in Berkeley. When federal and county drug agents tried to make an arrest, the suspect attempted to flee. Shots were fired. He and another man were shot to death by officers. The committee concludes the location of the drug arrest seemed inappropriate, because it was rush hour and the restaurant is located near a busy intersection.
