TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say four current Tulsa
police officers and one former officer have been arrested and
indicted in connection with a corruption probe.
U.S. Attorney Jane Duke in Arkansas said Tuesday two indictments
were unsealed after Earnest Bonham, Nick DeBruin, Jeff Henderson,
Harold Wells and Bill Yelton made initial court appearances.
The indictment alleged Henderson and Yelton persuaded a witness
to testify falsely against a man who was convicted in a drug case
and sent to prison. Bonham, DeBruin and Wells were accused of
planting drug evidence on people they arrested.
Henderson's attorney, Chad Greer, couldn't be reached for
Duke was appointed to the case after federal prosecutors in
Tulsa recused themselves.
