Nicolas Hill, a Houston man arrested in May for marijuana possession, told us Houston police officers found and ate pot brownies at his apartment. To back him up, his lawyers showed us HPD text messages in which officers bragged about being high.
The cops are under an Internal Affairs investigation. But now Nicholas Hill is out of trouble. Facing two to 20 years in prison, Hill agreed to a deferred adjudication deal saving him any jail time. But it saved the officers from having to tell their side of the story, too.
The Houston Police Department has until next March to wrap up its investigation of the officers involved. They won't tell us the status of their probe.
