Despite widespread media reports of postal investigators looking into whether a Huntington Beach woman sicced her dog on mail carrier and former Olympic swimmer Shirley Babashoff, a U.S. Postal Service spokesman said Wednesday there would be no investigation because there’s not enough evidence.
“No investigation is being done,” said Rich Maher, a spokesman for the postal service in Orange County. He said reporters had misinterpreted the words of a U.S. Postal Investigation Service officer who didn’t know the details of the case involving Babashoff.
“There was an incident report filed with the Postal Inspection Service, which is standard procedure any time local police are called for an incident,” he added. “The Postal Inspection Service, nor the U.S. Postal Service are looking into this.”
