An OPP officer has been arrested and faces a number of charges including attempting to obstruct justice.

In a news release the provincial force said Sgt. Dennis Mahoney-Bruer, 49, is suspected of using false evidence to charge three drivers for speeding and stunt driving. The incidents apparently happened earlier this month.

Mahoney-Bruer has been charged with three counts of breach of trust and one count of attempting to obstruct justice.

The officer worked out of the OPP Port Credit detachment, just west of Toronto. 

Mahoney-Bruer has been suspended from his duties and will appear in court on July 13.
