The police didn't notify the news media. Berger's police involvement (including the 911 calls, his texts and voicemails on a county-provided phone, incident reports, etc) are all public record. Any citizen can request access to them-- it's called transparency, and it's the main tenet that Berger ran his campaign on.
The news media is simply reporting what happened, and Berger is idiot enough to keep giving them things to report on. He is, unfortunately, too delusional and sick to see that he can offer nothing good to the citizens of this county. And now we are stuck with the sad, little man until the end of his term.
