A former North Texas police officer is accused of falsifying traffic tickets and claiming more than $20,000 in unearned overtime.

A Tarrant County grand jury on Wednesday indicted 46-year-old Herman Young, who resigned as a Fort Worth police officer amid the investigation.

Young is facing 12 counts of tampering with a governmental record and one count of theft by a public servant. The indictment says the overtime investigation goes back to 2008.

Young told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that he's surprised to be indicted and he does not yet have an attorney.

Two other Fort Worth officers targeted in the investigation have resigned. Police Chief Jeff Halstead fired six others, who are appealing.
