Police Officer Suspended After Leaking Report To Media

Last updated on Friday, December 28, 2012

(SOUTH BEND) - A South Bend city police officer is suspended five days without pay for leaking a report to the news media.

The city's Board of Public Works announced the suspension of Patrolman Jack Stilp on Thursday.

Stilp told the media that he had filed a report claiming another officer made threatening comments to him.

The "South Bend Tribune" reports it stemmed from a phone conversation between Stilp and St. Joseph County Metro Homicide Commander Tim Corbett in April.

Corbett earlier received a five day suspension for making the call to Stilp.
