The incident led to his being suspended as chief in August, and to his resignation in September.
In a news release, 7th District Attorney Gen. Dave Clark said the Anderson County Grand Jury last week returned the “indictments charging Ogburn with one count of forgery and one count of aggravated perjury.”
The TBI also issued a news release about Ogburn’s indictment and arrest, saying:
“An investigation by special agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has resulted in the indictment of a former police chief on forgery and perjury charges.
“In September 2019, at the request of 7th District Attorney General Dave Clark, TBI special agents began investigating allegations against Samuel Ogburn. The investigation revealed that in May of 2019, while serving as chief of the Norris Police Department, Ogburn created and falsified a firearms training document and submitted it to the Tennessee Peace Officers Standards and Training (POST) Commission. [Ogburn] resigned his position after the allegations surfaced.”
