Federal Police Officer Caught in Coverup

SN FRANCISCO -- A federal police officer has been accused of covering up for two colleagues who shot at a motorist.

A federal grand jury on Nov. 23 indicted Charles Jackson, a special agent with the Federal Protective Service, on charges he falsified records in an investigation, court records show.

Former federal officers Peter Taoy and John Haire pleaded guilty Nov. 15 to falsely accusing a motorist of attempting to run them over. The motorist, Jeffrey Petri, spent six days in jail last year on false charges of assaulting an officer.
