Tabor City cop hoping to clear name


A Tabor City police officer under criminal indictment was in Columbus County Court today. Lt. Greg Sibbett thought there was a chance the judge would dismiss the charges against him, but it turned out to be more of an administrative court hearing confirming he had a lawyer.

Sibbett is on administrative leave from the Tabor City Police Department facing charges including assault by pointing a gun and two counts of felonious restraint.

He detained two unlicensed teenagers outside of his jurisdiction. Sibbett says he saw the boys knocking over trash cans with a pick-up truck. Sibbett denies ever using a gun during the incident, and other officers who responded say they never saw him use a gun, either.

Sibbett has not been tried, let alone convicted, yet District Attorney Rex Gore has already started dismissing cases that Sibbett investigated.
