    LOS ANGELES – Daryl F. Gates, the polarizing former police chief whose 14-year tenure ended amid widespread criticism over his department's response to the city's deadly 1992 riots, died Friday after a short bout with cancer. He was 83.

    Gates died at his Newport Beach home with his family at his side, according to a police statement.

    Gates' brother said in February the former chief had bladder cancer that had spread to a bone near his hip.


    RIP Chief.
