NOPD Lieutenant Lied About Glover Shooting, FBI Agent Testifies

November 23, 2010  | 

A New Orleans police lieutenant accused of authoring a fabricated police report in the Henry Glover case lied about his involvement in the investigation and changed his story as the federal probe progressed, FBI Agent Ashley Johnson testified Monday.

Lt. Travis McCabe is one of five officers charged with beating the 31-year-old Glover, burning his body in a vehicle and covering up the incident.

McCabe is charged with obstruction of justice, along with retired Lt. Robert Italiano, for writing what prosecutors say is a false police report about the incident. The pair are also accused of lying to the FBI, while McCabe is additionally charged with lying to a grand jury.

Two other officers -- Lt. Dwayne Scheuermann and officer Greg McRae -- are charged with burning Glover's body in a car, as well as beating two men who tried to help Glover. Officer David Warren is charged with the shooting, which prosecutors assert was unjustified.
