Lying is probably the most common thing that cops do. It is their word against yours and they are “Sworn officers of the court”. This Jack ass was given the benefit of the doubt just one hour before he was busted. Do you think that they have gone back and examined any of his arrests for lies? I can guarantee that they did not. It is known and expected that cops will lie to get convictions. Just a little twist of the truth puts a whole lot of fine money into the court system. Without fines and fees the courts can’t afford to run. So if a cop arrests you and lies on the report , don’t be surprised. You are far from alone.
“NEW PHILADELPHIA – A former Newcomerstown police officer accused of lying about being shot on duty causing a manhunt for a fictional suspect pleaded guilty Wednesday to charges stemming from the incident.
Bryan Eubanks, 37, pleaded guilty to the following charges, according to an announcement from Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine:
- One count of inducing panic, a felony of the fifth degree;
- One count of making false alarms, a felony of the fifth degree;
- Two counts of tampering with evidence, felonies of the third degree;
- One count of forgery, a felony of the fifth degree; and
- One count of workers’ compensation fraud, a misdemeanor of the first degree.
“An investigation conducted by the Tuscarawas County Sheriff’s Office found that on April 11, then-officer Eubanks shot himself while on duty, but claimed he was shot by a man in a vehicle after stopping the car for a traffic violation. The fictional story led to a response involving local, state, and federal authorities.
Additionally, an investigation by the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation found that Eubanks forged workers’ compensation documents to fraudulently apply for benefits related to his injury.
In a press conference a week after the incident, Tuscarawas County Sheriff Orvis Campbell and Newcomerstown Police Chief Gary Holland talked about how Eubanks later admitted to them that he had made up the incident. The officer who had spent 14 years with the department said the story was invented to cover up a failed suicide attempt. Eubanks had been shot himself in the arm. He was fired a week after the false report.”
