    • Fairport, New York: An officer [Phil Provenzano] has been accused of fabricating evidence in a personal small claims case, which has forced him to step down from testifying in court on other cases. An attorney said, “I was mortified that we would go forward and give false testimony in a case like that particularly from a person who gives testimony frequently in cases and who the public relies upon to give truthful testimony.” More than a dozen DUI cases now must be dismissed, as the officer was the key witness in them.

    • Ventura, California: A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed against an officer [Eric Jackson] over a [fatal] shooting. The suit says he violated police policy and the civil rights of a man [Mario Lopez, 44]. This is not the first time the officer has been accused of excessive force.
