“NEW PHILADELPHIA – A Newcomerstown police officer has been fired and could face multiple charges after he admitted Tuesday that he shot himself in the arm and made up a story that he was shot by someone in a black Geo Tracker during a traffic stop.

Bryan J. Eubanks, 37, a 14-year veteran with the Newcomerstown Police Department, admitted under questioning from investigators Tuesday that he had made up the story to cover up a failed suicide attempt.

Tuscarawas County Sheriff Orvis Campbell said Eubanks could face multiple charges, including inducing panic and theft for reporting hospital treatment of his injury as work-related. Prosecutor Ryan Styer will determine what Eubanks will face.”
