BALTIMORE (AP) - Baltimore prosecutors say the number of criminal cases dropped due to allegations of police misconduct, including body camera videos appearing to show officers planting evidence and a federal indictment of eight officers on racketeering and fraud charges, has risen from September's announcement.

A Dover police officer has been put on paid suspension for four months as police and prosecutors look into his use of force to arrest Lateef Dickerson on assault and other charges.

40 year old Corporal Thomas Webster is an eight year veteran on the force.

The Wilmington News Journal is citing sources that say the Delaware Attorney General’s office is planning on seeking a grand jury indictment next week charging Webster with assault.

The paper reports that no details have been released to the public as to what Webster allegedly did to Dickerson.
