A Montgomery County, Maryland, police officer has been charged with perjury and workers’ compensation fraud. Gilbert Payne was charged Tuesday in Baltimore City Circuit Court. The 40-year-old Payne didn’t respond to a message seeking comment at his home Tuesday. Maryland’s state prosecutor’s office says Payne left the Baltimore Police Department in 2007 on a full disability pension. They say he testified under oath in a 2008 workers’ compensation hearing that he was unemployed and hadn’t been employed since he retired from the department.
