Indicted Ex-Miss. Chief Faces New Charges

May 20, 2013  | 

A former Mississippi police chief arrested in March for allegedly demanding cash or property from suspects in exchange for leniency faces nine new counts, the FBI announced Friday.

Donald "Bruce" Barlow, who served as the Mendenhall Police chief until October 2010, sometimes made people sign over their vehicles in exchange for him dropping charges and also demanded cash payments, in one case $4,500, the new charges allege.

Barlow was first indicted Feb. 5 on eight counts including conspiracy, extortion, soliciting bribes and witness tampering, reports the Associated Press. He was arrested on March 7 and has pleaded not guilty, according to an FBI press release. The new charges add nine additional counts.
