(NECN) A part-time police officer who claimed to have taken gunfire Wednesday before getting into a fiery car accident with his cruiser completely fabricated the story, police in Massachusetts said Thursday.
The officer, identified by sources as Bryan Johnson of Millis, was scheduled to begin training as a full-time officer. He is now being fired, however, according to police, who have not released the officer’s name pending formal charges.
“We have determined that the officer’s story was fabricated,” said Millis Police Sgt. Bill Dwyer.
