Toledo Officer Charged in Shooting Plot

February 12, 2015  | 

A Toledo police lieutenant was arraigned this week on charges that he helped to plot the shooting of a woman who testified in a high-profile murder case.

The lieutenant was charged Wednesday in Toledo Municipal Court with felonious assault, obstructing official business, and tampering with evidence. He appeared in Toledo Municipal Court this morning, shackled and wearing an orange jumpsuit.

According to court documents, police allege the lieutenant, who is not identified as an officer in any of the documents, “participated in the planning of a felonious assault” in which Tiffany Williams was shot at on Dec. 26.

Ms. Williams testified at the murder trials of Samuel Williams, who is of no relation to Ms. Williams, and Cameo Pettaway, who were accused of killing Johnny Clarke and Lisa Straub in Springfield Township in January 2011, the Toledo Blade reports.

Johnny Clarke's parents, John Clarke, 45, and Maytee Vazquez-Clarke, 44, were arrested after Ms. Williams was shot at twice. Police accused the elder Clarke of shooting twice at Ms. Williams, 28, in an alley.

Police allege that the lieutenant, who is known to be a personal friend of Ms. Vazquez-Clarke, also “did direct another to remove and delete evidence related to the crime and his involvement in the same.”

Why did the "Toledo Lt" name never show upon this article? Why should he be protected from everyone knowing what he is accused of? Or did I miss something?
