BRYAN, Ohio (AP) — A sheriff’s deputy in Ohio is accused of lying about a fatal shooting involving another officer.
A grand jury indicted Williams County sheriff’s deputy Mick Frisbie on a perjury charge this week.
A special prosecutor says the indictment is related to Frisbie’s conflicting testimony about the shooting death of an armed man by a village police chief.
Edon Police Chief Tom Szymczak fatally shot John Anderson once in the back in June 2016. A grand jury declined to indict him on any criminal charges.
Anderson’s family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit in federal court.
The Blade reports that Frisbie has been placed on paid administrative leave. A message seeking comment was left with his attorney.
