Councilman, police officer suspended

February 4, 2010

A City-County Councilman and metro police officer has been suspended. Lincoln Plowman is a Republican councilman from Franklin Township. He's also a high-ranking police officer and the focus of an internal investigation. Plowman commands IMPD's support service branch, which oversees reserve officers. Public Safety Director Frank Straub wouldn't say why Plowman is under investigation. He has turned in his gun, badge and squad car. A spokesman for the FBI says he can neither confirm nor deny a federal probe is taking place. Fox59 will have more on the story at 4 p.m.
