Butler County Prosecutor Michael Gmoser met with reporters for an hour Tuesday, explaining step-by-step how a grand jury chose not to charge five Monroe police officers with the February 11th shooting death of 35 year old Dustin Booth. Gmoser says Booth stood up and pointed a large .45 caliber handgun at officers after they tried to take him into custody during a traffic stop. Gmoser says police also acted reasonably in the events leading up to the shooting, and he says he had no bias as he presented the case to the grand jury. Booth's family is planning a lawsuit against Monroe police.
