PEORIA- Two Peoria police officers were indicted Tuesday for their alleged role in the investigation of an accident. Vice officer John Couve and patrol Sgt. Richard Glover are each charged with official misconduct and obstructing justice. Couve is also charged with reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident and texting while driving. Glover is also charged with disorderly conduct. Police reports show an unmarked car, assigned to Couve, was involved in an accident July 8th on North Hale, causing a large power outage. Authorities say Couve and other officers were at a bar prior to the incident. Glover was the first officer to respond and wrote the accident report which allegedly claimed the vehicle had been stolen. Both men are free on bond pending their next court appearance October 4th.
