A former Florida Highway Patrol trooper was charged with perjury and booked into the Lee County Jail Wednesday.
Michael T. Scott is accused of giving false testimony in Lee County Traffic Court in October 2008.
Scott, 52, resigned from the FHP in November of last year, after the agency opened an internal investigation into his actions.
FHP forwarded their results to the State Attorney's Office, which filed the charge of Perjury in an Official Proceeding.
Scott faces up to five years in prison and/or up to a $5,000 fine.
