BEAUMONT, Texas (AP) - A Southeast Texas police officer faces a felony charge of tampering with a government document.

Beaumont police Sgt. Keith Breiner (BRY’-ner) resigned after being indicted Wednesday. Chief Jimmy Singletary says Breiner was suspended with pay prior to being indicted.

The Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office says Breiner’s case involves an ongoing investigation of another person charged with impersonating a public servant and unlawful possession of body armor.

No publicly listed telephone number could be found for Breiner. The Beaumont Police Officers Association didn’t immediately return a message Thursday.

Breiner in 2007 was a Beaumont detective when he was indefinitely suspended for conduct unbecoming an officer. The matter involved alleged sex acts by Breiner at two spas under investigation.

Breiner was reinstated in 2009 after an arbitrator ruled the penalty was excessive.
