Tulsa County Sheriff Stanley Glanz apologized on Monday to the family of Eric Harris, who was shot and killed earlier in April by a reserve deputy who mistook his gun for a taser.

In a televised news conference Glanz acknowledged to reporters his long-time friendship with reserve deputy Robert Bates, 73, who has been charged with manslaughter in the case.

Glanz denied that Bates' training records had been falsified - which was alleged in a news report - and defended his qualifications.
