Roger J. JonesFormer New Orleans police officer, Roger Jones, 38, has resigned after being arrested — again — on hit-and-run charges. The 15-year veteran, who was already on desk duty pending investigation of a 2011 hit-and-run, confessed to hitting a car, leaving the scene of the accident, parking his police cruiser at another location, then reporting it stolen.

He was charged with “hit-and-run driving and maintaining a false public record.”

The Times-Picayune reports:

…investigators accuse Jones of crashing into a parked car; leaving the scene; and then reporting about 8:30 a.m. Thursday that his vehicle had been stolen from near the corner of North Rampart and Toulouse streets. Jones claimed he later found it “severely damaged” at the intersection of Iberville and Marais streets, NOPD spokeswoman Remi Braden said.

A 1st District officer filing Jones’ report noticed discrepancies in the story and contacted the NOPD’s Public Integrity Bureau. Without elaborating, Braden added PIB detectives obtained evidence discrediting Jones’ claims that someone had stolen his car and wrecked it.

On Friday, PIB investigators approached Jones, and he agreed to give a statement, Braden said. Jones allegedly confessed to committing a hit-and-run; moving his car to Iberville and Marais; and then lodging a false report on the matter. He tendered his resignation and was booked.

“Residents should be comforted by the fact that the initial officer questioning Mr. Jones wasted no time in alerting the Public Integrity Bureau once she picked up on discrepancies in this fellow officer’s story. We take the departmental oath very seriously, and Jones’ behavior clearly violated our code of ethics,” said Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas.
