FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) - A Fort Worth officer was kicked off the force for filing a false sworn statement about an arrest, police said Thursday.

Officer Benjamin Hanlon was let go on Tuesday for lying on an affidavit for an arrest that happened in August.

Hanlon was one of the officers involved in the deadly shooting of an elderly homeowner in May. The owner of the Fort Worth home, Jerry Waller, 72, was killed during the burglary call. In addition to Hanlon, another officer was suspended, according to the department.

Fort Worth police said Hanlon’s termination isn’t related to Waller’s death.
