Trooper accused of falsely reporting an incident in Batavia while off duty
A State Trooper has been arrested and charged with offering a false instrument for filing and falsely reporting an incident after allegedly claiming she was menaced by a person with a weapon while in Batavia.
Investigators say Brianna J. Smith, 25, was off duty at the time of the incident.
The location in Batavia of the report was not released nor were other details of the incident.
The State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation conducted the investigation. In a release, State Police say that investigators determined a weapon was never displayed nor used in the incident.
She was arrested and processed at the Batavia Barracks. Smith was attached to Troop T in Syracuse.
She was issued an appearance ticket in Town of Batavia Court for a date this month.
The starting salary for a New York Trooper during Academy training is $53,993.00.
Their salary jumps to $71,712.00 when they graduate. They get another raise after a year that brings their salary up to $76, 381.00. By five years, they are making $90,827.00.
What a foolish woman, throwing away her career, and making her fellow Troopers look bad.
Like the Department of Corrections does with their Officers for lying on paper, the Troopers will fire her.
What a DISGRACE!!! I wonder if she is related to L.J. LANG??
