Officer jailed for lie about being shot during traffic stopFebruary 13, 2018 12:09pm

NEW PHILADELPHIA, Ohio (AP) — A now-fired Ohio police officer has been sentenced to three months in jail for shooting himself and falsely claiming he'd been shot during a traffic stop.

The Times Reporter in New Philadelphia reports that a judge on Monday also sentenced former Newcomerstown officer Bryan Eubanks to community service and fines and restitution totaling about $4,500. He could face prison if he violates his two-year parole.

The 38-year-old Eubanks apologized in court. His attorney says the shooting was a suicide attempt and that Eubanks' actions resulted from post-traumatic stress disorder stemming from his police work.

Authorities say Eubanks claimed people in a car shot him in the arm during a traffic stop in April. Eubanks later confessed the lie.

He pleaded guilty to charges including inducing panic and tampering with evidence.

The family of Korryn Gaines, who was fatally shot by police two years ago may never receive the entire $37 million it was awarded in a lawsuit this week. Maryland has a cap on local governments' liabilities in such cases, and judges have a tendency to lower large awards on appeal.  Legal experts say that it's unlikely the young son of Korryn Gaines and other relatives will see all the money awarded Friday.  (Barbara Haddock Taylor/The Baltimore Sun via AP)
