Galt Police Chief Bob Fuller countered charges against his nine-man police force. Fuller was accused last week of hiring Officer Dale Hayes without a thorough background check. The accusation stems from a recent settlement of a brutality suit filed against the Calistoga Police Department involving Hayes, who had previously worked on that force. Fuller denied the accusations, saying a background check was done, including results of the alleged brutality incident.
