Cleveland Officer Charged in Shooting Investigation
Submitted by WDEF on December 19, 2008 - 12:54pm

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has charged Officer Jonathan Hammons with perjury and filing a false report.

They are not saying much yet about the case.

But it involves one officer shooting another last month in a Russian Roulette kind of game.

Officers originally reported that Chris Mason was shot in the hand when a gun accidentally discharged.

But since an internal investigation into what really happened.. Two officers have been suspended and a third has resigned.
