Fullerton's police chief is extending his medical leave from the department.

Chief Michael Sellers initially went on medical leave in August.

The chief was criticized for his handling of the investigation into the death of Kelly Thomas, a mentally ill homeless man, following a confrontation with Fullerton police.

The city said Sellers' doctor extended his medical leave for 60 days.

A doctor for the city is reviewing his records and will give a separate opinion to city leaders in two weeks.
