ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Asheville Police Chief William Anderson says he’s embarrassed that his officers wrote hundreds of bad speeding tickets.

The Asheville Citizen-Times reported (https://avlne.ws/1F2vA4P) that Anderson wrote his staff this week and said the department’s record keeping, tracking of equipment, inspections and inventory system were haphazard.

An internal police review found about 250 tickets out of 4,500 issued in the last year were based on speed measured by radar guns with out-of-date certifications.

Anderson says the department is still reviewing another 105 tickets.

Anderson says the department should have had safeguards in place to avoid the problem with the tickets.
