MILPITAS (CBS SF) — A former Milpitas police officer self-surrendered on Tuesday to a $10,000 arrest warrant for a felony charge of filing a false police report.

In a press release, Milpitas Police said they noticed that in December, an account of an event on a police report did not corroborate with minor damage on a police vehicle. The department submitted an investigation to the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office.

Upon completion of the investigation, the DA charged former officer Victor Madarang, 24, with filing a false police report.

According to the Deputy District Attorney, Madarang had hit a pole in a parking lot while driving a patrol car, but he later wrote a police report claiming that the car was hit by another car while parked.

Madarang was sworn in as a Milpitas officer in July 2018.

    If he’ll lie about the small stuff, there’s a good chance he’ll lie about the big stuff. Good for the Milpitas PD, especially if they stick to a zero tolerance policy on lying, from top to bottom, no matter what the consequences may be.

    Good, he is gone. However, if he beats the charge then look for him to Gypsy Cop to another department out of state.
