DENVER (AP) - A former Commerce City police officer who said he was shot during a traffic stop has pleaded not guilty to false reporting and trying to influence a public servant.

The Denver Post reports (https://goo.gl/dzuxNY ) 51-year-old Kevin Lord entered his plea Monday and is set to go to trial July 18.

The Colorado Bureau of Investigation linked a bullet recovered from Lord’s ballistic vest, as well as a shell casing, to a .40-caliber gun the officer had when he was shot Nov. 8.

Lord, who has resigned, was treated for non-life-threatening injuries after the incident, in which he is now accused of shooting himself. Police credited his ballistic vest with saving his life.

A man who answered a phone listed as Lord’s hung up without commenting Monday.
