  1. Here are the 9 reports of police misconduct tracked for Tuesday, September 18, 2012
    • West Point, Utah: A high-speed chase that reached speeds of over 100 mph ended with a rollover crash. The chase began after an off-duty officer witnessed a store alarm going off when a man ran out. He appeared to be taking an electronic appliance.
    • Worcester, Massachusetts: Police have indefinitely suspended without pay a state trooper [Jason Willard] who was indicted on sexual assault charges. He was indicted on three counts of indecent assault and battery and two counts of open and gross lewdness involving an 18-year-old girl.
    • Burlington, Vermont: A former state trooper [Jim Deeghan] who allegedly stole taxpayer money in an overtime scam is now accused of writing hundreds of fake traffic tickets.
    • Berwick, Pennsylvania: An officer [Christian Wilson] was arrested on charges that he stole evidence to support his drug habit. He allegedly stole more than 800 packets of heroin from police at one time. Police are investigating to see if it was an isolated incident.
    • Memphis, Tennessee: An officer [Sean McWhirter] was charged in a complaint alleging the transportation of individuals in interstate commerce for the purpose of prostitution. The incident happened while the officer was on-duty and using his patrol car. “Human sex trafficking is a horrific crime that has a devastating impact on its victims and the community,” said U.S. Attorney Edward L. Stanton III. “What makes this case worse is that the alleged perpetrator is a law enforcement official who was sworn to protect and serve. Those who betray the public trust insult the integrity and honor of all law enforcement officials who risk their lives upholding the law.”
    • Brunswick County, North Carolina: A deputy [Adam Lockner] is facing charges after a crash that killed a motorcyclist. He is charged with misdemeanor death by motor vehicle and failure to yield.
    • Madison, Wisconsin: An officer who worked in a school was suspended without pay for eight days and reassigned for violating department policies.
    • Tulsa, Oklahoma: An officer [Shawn King] was suspended again after accusations of sexual misconduct while on duty came up.
    • Milton, Delaware: A lawsuit has been filed against the City of Lewes and their police department. It claims the police unnecessarily used a taser to shock a man while he was handcuffed and shackled. The man says that he suffered permanent injuries from the arrest. The defense attorney for the city says that the man was intoxicated and he resisted efforts to administer first aid. He also said that there is no evidence of wrongdoing by his clients.
