CA:Rival campers who opened fire turn out to be sheriff's deputies

Are police a "protected group" with special privileges?  It appears so from the following incident in California.  I do not think that the fact that the people involved were law enforcement officers was noted in early reporting, though I may be confusing this story with another:

An apparent booze-fueled dispute over loud music between two groups at a Chino campground over the weekend escalated to the point where men from both sides drew guns and opened fire.

No one was hurt, but the two alleged gunmen have plenty to explain.

It turns out that the rival gun-toting campers were both Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies.


Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore said both deputies have been relieved of duty with pay. He said the men brandished their guns in a "threatening manner."

They did not fire at each other, he said, but into the air.
