Two former Detroit police officers have been charged with misconduct in office and filing a false police report.

Steven Fultz, 34, and John McKee, 43, are accused of filing false reports in a drug case--which eventually led to a dismissal of charges for the suspect after an audio recording reportedly revealed their confession.

“Allegations of lying about evidence flies in the face of everything law enforcement tries to do. If we can prove it, we will charge it, and prosecute it aggressively," said Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy in a press release. 

Fultz and McKee were arraigned Friday morning. Their probable cause hearing is scheduled for April 29 and their preliminary examination is set for May 5.
