Federal prosecutors presented evidence Wednesday against a former police officer who is accused of stealing money from informants and the Baltimore Police Department and lying about it to the FBI. Former Officer Ethan Glover was indicted in April 2021 on accusations that he stole $10,000 from more than $2.4 million recovered during a drug bust by the Drug Enforcement Administration. Glover was part of a DEA task force at the time. Jurors heard testimony from prosecution witnesses that much of the evidence focuses on the charges that Glover stole the money and forged city police paperwork to cover it up.

A federal judge in Wisconsin ruled Wednesday that a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the father of a man shot and killed by Kyle Rittenhouse during a protest in 2020 can proceed against Rittenhouse, police officers and others. The father of Anthony Huber, one of two men shot and killed by Rittenhouse, filed the lawsuit in 2021, accusing officers of allowing for a dangerous situation that violated his son's constitutional rights and resulted in his death.
