Second Officer Charged in Danziger Cover-Up
A second NOPD officer appears to be cooperating with the feds in their widening investigation into a cover-up at the Danziger Bridge...
Jeffrey Lehrmann, one of two officers who interviewed witnesses after several civilians were shot by police at the Danziger Bridge, has been charged in federal court with knowing about and concealing a crime.
According to recently unsealed court documents obtained by our partners at the Times-Picayune, Lehrmann knew about and participated in the conspiracy to obstruct justice that former NOPD Lt. Michael Lohman outlined last month. Lehrmann is specifically charged with the "creation of false police reports and the provision of false information to investigating agents."
