A former Warren police officer accused of a 2014 assault now faces another assault charge after allegedly threatening a doctor who was to testify in the first case.
Arthur Gill, 54, was arrested Tuesday and is being held on a $1-million bond, according to WDIV.
The station has the backstory:
Five years ago, Gill allegedly punched a man in the chest while responding to a shots fired call. In the police report, he wrote that the man swatted his hand.
The man who was punched filed a lawsuit, claiming Gill lied. When another officer backed up the man's story, Gill was charged with three misdemeanors.
Gill allegedly retaliated against the officer by filing a report against him with Child Protective Services.
Gill is accused of threatening a doctor who was supposed to testify on the other officer's behalf.
