INDIANAPOLIS - An Indianapolis officer was arrested on a charge of false reporting Thursday evening.
Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Officer Andrew Tyler was placed on administrative leave while the department conducts an internal investigation, authorities said.
Tyler, who has been with IMPD for about five years, was arrested by officers with the Indiana State Police.
According to the probable cause affidavit, the charge stems from a false statement Tyler gave during a September 2013 rape investigation, in which Tyler was the suspect.
Tyler had been accused of raping a woman he'd met on Match.com, but in his interview with investigators he said they'd never had sex, court documents say.
But DNA evidence gathered with the woman's rape kit matched Tyler's DNA, officials said. Tyler was again interviewed by investigators, and he changed his story, admitting the two had sexual relations.
Tyler admitted in the second interview that he'd lied during the first interview, court documents said.
