Officer faces felony conviction after neighbor's traffic stop

An alleged neighborhood vendetta has ended with a police officer in jail. He is now facing the prospect of a conviction after being indicted for several felonies. The officer has been a police officer for approximately five years but authorities say he seemed to have a preoccupation with one of his neighbors. The potential for a felony conviction came after he allegedly provided false information about the woman in a police report. The Collinsville officer allegedly hid evidence connected to the woman's alleged felony case, in what the woman described as a personal "vendetta" against her.
