Email

CHEBOYGAN, Mich. (AP) -- Two Michigan State Police troopers have been sentenced to jail and fined for poaching deer while on duty.

District Judge Maria Barton says Jeff Hadley not only shot a deer with his hunting rifle while on patrol in November, he lied and told a fellow trooper that the blood in his vehicle was from road kill. He even claimed he had delivered the meat to a needy family, she said.
