CINCINNATI (AP) - An outside consultant’s report says a former University of Cincinnati policeman who fatally shot a driver last year led the department in the number of stops, citations and arrests in the year he was patrolling the streets.

The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/22UCovT ) says the report by the monitoring and compliance firm Exiger concluded Ray Tensing also had a higher racial disparity among those he stopped than any other university officer.

Tensing is white. The motorist he shot after a traffic stop last July was black.

UC sought the review from Exiger as part of an overhaul of its police department after the shooting.

The university fired the 26-year-old Tensing, who has pleaded not guilty to murder. Defense attorney Stew Mathews says Tensing was proactive and aggressive in carrying out his job.
