According to authorities, Reed was arrested at his State Police office in downtown Indianapolis Friday afternoon.

Police say the 53-year-old is accused of forging sales purchase price information on vehicle titles which resulted in lower sales tax payments.

He has been placed on unpaid administrative leave. His police powers have been suspended until his trial is complete. If found guilty, his employment with Indiana State Police will be terminated, police say.
