Oakland Police Chief Anthony Batts apparently is not going to San Jose after all. The Mercury News, citing anonymous sources, reports this afternoon that San Jose City Manager Debra Figone has selected San Jose's acting Police Chief Chris Moore instead of Batts to be the city's next police chief. Figone is expected to make her recommendation to the San Jose City Council next Tuesday.

Update, 8:14 p.m: the Trib is now reporting that Batts has confirmed he did not get the San Jose job, though he has apparently not committed to remaining in Oakland, either. "I have not made a final decision as to my future with this agency," the Trib story quotes Batts as saying in a news release.
