“COMMERCE CITY — In a surprise twist, a Commerce City police officer who said he was shot last weekend has been arrested and charged with a felony.
Officer Kevin Lord is being charged with attempting to influence a public official, District Attorney Dave Young said at a news conference Friday night.
Officials said Lord was arrested at 8:15 p.m. Friday and had turned in his service weapon.
Just a day earlier, Commerce City, state and federal officials announced a $20,000 reward for information in Lord’s shooting.”
“At the time on the initial report, police said Lord was shot when he approached a stopped Nissan Pathfinder about 7:10 a.m. Sunday. His ballistic vest stopped the bullet and his injuries were not life-threatening, officials said.
Lord gave a description of the man he said shot him and also gave a possible license plate number.
He described the shooter as a white man in his late 40s or early 50s with a thin build and brown hair. Police released a drawing of a probable suspect.
“There is no armed gunman on the loose this night,” Smith said. “No police officers are in danger.”
Oh thank God that no police officers are in danger!
Here is what is missing from the above; the original headline
“Commerce City police officer arrested in own shooting”
Yep, just like Fox lake Illinois
A true hero with a badge
What a dumb ass
