The release also said detectives intend to refer the case to either the L.A. County District Attorney or L.A. City Attorneys office once all pertinent evidence has been gathered. Los Angeles Times, results from additional testing could take anywhere from 30 to 90 days, and Heche wouldnt be detained or arrested until those results are released.
