SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Salt Lake County prosecutors say cases may be thrown out in light of concerns about a former Utah state trooper’s credibility.

District Attorney Sim Gill said Tuesday he would suspend all cases relying solely on information from former trooper Neil Green, adding they would likely be thrown out based on what his office has learned. Gill says 20 to 40 cases could be affected.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports Utah Highway Patrol issued a statement at a Tuesday afternoon press conference that says Green had testified in a hearing that he gave a field sobriety test to a driver he arrested in 2013 but a video later showed there was no test.

Prosecutors say after Green resigned from the Utah Highway Patrol last year.

Green could not be immediately reached for a comment.
