England cop charged in false shooting report

Posted By on Tue, Nov 3, 2015 at 9:52 AM

The State Police say David Houser, 50, of Scott has been charged with falsely claiming he was shot Oct. 24 while working as an England police officer.

He had told others he was on patrol when he exchanged shots with someone in an SUV driving south of England on Highway 15. He said he was shot.

The State Police release said:

An investigation of the reported shooting by Arkansas State Police Special Agents assigned to Criminal Investigation Division subsequently lead to information contradictory to Houser’s initial statement.

Houser surrendered to State Police and local law enforcement authorities earlier today. Questions relating to the administrative employment status of Houser should be directed to the England Police Department.
