FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – A Fort Worth Police officer is facing multiple charges, accused of attacking a man and then trying to cover it up.
A Tarrant County grand jury indicted officer Jon Romer, Jr. last week on charges of official oppression and perjury.
He was booked into the Tarrant County Jail Thursday evening.
The indictment accuses Romer of punching, choking and pushing a man he was arresting in 2016.
Romer is also accused of making a false statement last month during a police investigation.
The Fort Worth Police Department would not comment on the situation.
