SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - The Santa Ana Police Department is still waiting to know if it can use surveillance video in an internal affairs investigation into a pot-shop raid after a judge postponed his decision on the matter.

The Orange County Register reports (https://bit.ly/1K4KNSj ) that Orange County Superior Judge William Claster said Wednesday said the city had not had a fair chance to prepare for arguments.

Surveillance video from a May 26 raid of Sky High Holistic shows police playing darts and an officer making demeaning remarks about a woman in a wheelchair. Another officer can be seen eating what appears to be a pot-laced edible, according to a lawyer.

A representative for the officers says the surveillance was illegal and that officers will be harmed if the tape is used.
