A Fairfax County police officer has been charged with falsifying a hit-and-run report on his cruiser.

Officer Carl Biggs reported that his cruiser was struck by a hit-and-run driver during a crash in Annandale last May. Investigators say Biggs' cruiser was the only vehicle involved in the crash of his car, which hit a utility pole on Gallows Road," according to the Associated Press.

Police say Biggs initially told investigators that another car ran a stop sign and struck his cruiser, causing it to spin out and hit the pole.

Biggs, who's been with the department for two years wasn't injured. He's been charged with hit-and-run and filing a false police report.
