Edenton Cop Charged With Evidence Tampering

A police officer in the Chowan County town of Edenton has been charged with altering evidence in a criminal investigation.

Michael Aaron Davidson was charged last week and released on an
unsecured bond.

A search warrant application filed by state investigators indicated the 32-year-old Davidson has been investigated several times during his law enforcement career. Allegations against him included missing money, using excessive force and planting evidence. He previously was an officer with the Kinston Police Department and the Tyrrell County Sheriff's Department.
