FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) – The Fort Worth police chief says he’s revising his department’s bar inspection policies in the wake of a June raid on a gay bar that left one man hospitalized with a serious head injury.

Chief Jeff Halstead gave a preliminary report on his department’s investigation to City Council members Tuesday. He says flawed policy led to circumstances at the Rainbow Lounge that night that otherwise wouldn’t have happened.

Halstead says the final report should be ready by next month or October. It will include whether excessive force and other allegations against some officers are justified and any recommended disciplinary actions.

The chief says the department is also trying to mend its relationship with the gay community.
