Police Notebook: Roger Boudreau (APD)

Officer:  Roger Boudreau
Agency:  APD
Alleged Misconduct:  Lied about his actions in a 2007 shootout, causing a man he shot to be charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and spend 13 months in jail before being released on personal bond. The man also lost a leg as a result of the shooting. The charges were ultimately dismissed in 2008 after the state’s own experts examined an audio tape recording of the confrontation and agreed with the defendant’s version of events rather than the officer’s.
Disciplinary Action:  None known. Boudreau actually received APD’s Medal of Valor (the department’s highest honor) for displaying exceptional bravery in the incident.
