Former police officer indicted in ticket fix

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A grand jury in Memphis has indicted a former city police officer, accusing him of fabricating evidence.

The department fired Ivory Robinson, 41, Jan. 21 after he told a judge last year that he'd been fixing traffic tickets for friends and family members for years.

The Commercial Appeal reports the indictment accuses Robinson of sending a phony memo from another officer to the City Court Clerk. The memo sought to void a ticket that officer had written.

Police Director Larry Godwin said the other officer, identified in the indictment of Alvin Gary, reported Robinson's act to the department.

Robinson is free on $10,000 bond.
