Baton Rouge- A Baton Rouge police officer, accused of falsifying four misdemeanor summonses, is now under arrest.

Police say between June 6 and July 26, Derek Burns issued four misdemeanor summonses to three people without their knowledge.

The victims told investigators that they had never come into contact with Burns and that they never signed the misdemeanor summonses in question

The summonses were sent to a certified forensic document examiner who concluded that all four signatures were written by Burns, the warrant says.

Burns was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on four counts each of injuring public records, forgery, and malfeasance in office.

Burns has been placed on paid administrative leave.
