The Commerce City Police officer accused of lying about being shot during a traffic stop was formally advised of the charges against him on Monday.

Kevin Lord is charged with attempting to influence a public servant and false reporting.

Lord was shot November 8. He told investigators he was shot by a suspect near 96th and Peoria Street.

Police issued a blue alert for the alleged suspect vehicle, investigators created a sketch of the suspect, officers said they searched numerous neighborhoods and there was even a $20,000 reward issued for information in the case. But five days later, on November 13, Lord was arrested and investigators announced he had not been shot during a traffic stop, like he claimed. However, they did not release any other information.

Lord is scheduled to be back in Adams County Court on January 15 for a disposition hearing. He remains free on $5,000 bond.
