Michigan Police Sergeant Fired Over Police Report

Chicago Tribune via Yellowbrix

February 22, 2011

WARREN, Mich. — A 45-year-old Warren police commander has been fired because his written report about a traffic stop and a drug-related arrest didn’t match separate videos of the incident.

Deputy Commissioner Louis Galasso tells The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens that Sgt. Tim Maniere was fired Friday following an internal affairs investigation.

Galasso said a TV Warren cameraman was traveling with Maniere in July when the 15-year department veteran arrested a suspect on a felony narcotics charge.

The case was dismissed and Maniere was suspended with pay after an evidentiary hearing in January showed the video and footage from the officer’s patrol car didn’t match his written report.

A phone number listed in Maniere’s name rang unanswered Tuesday.

The Warren Police Command Officers Association hasn’t decided whether to challenge Maniere’s dismissal.

    There really isn't a lot of information in this article. It is sad that an officer lost his career under these circumstances. However, I don't think there is enough info here to rate the article a "thumbs up".

    I personally dont see why officers continue to lie for stuff like this... Seriously over an arrest for drugs? Not to mention that you have a video system in your car and have to turn the tapes in. Lying in general is an LEOs biggest downfall but seriously don't loose your job over a scum bag.

    When writing reports it is details, details, details, but you MUST be sure that the details are accurate, accurate, accurate. Way to throw away a career!

    It's apparent that there was a huge divide between the written word and the video. Always tell the truth
    on any documentation.

    Not much information here, but apparently there was enough to fire him. One must always maintain their integrity whether they are being filmed or not as that is what our profession is all about and especially in present day as you never know who could be filming/recording you...
