Ex-Muskogee Co. deputy pleads guilty to charge

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A former Muskogee County Jail deputy has pleaded guilty to a charge of lying to the FBI.

The U.S. Department of Justice says 33-year-old Dennis Frisbie Jr. pleaded guilty Friday in federal court in Oklahoma City to one count of making false statements to the FBI.

The DOJ says Frisbie admitted he lied when he told the FBI that he had been shot in the shoulder by an unknown person after he was interviewed by agents investigating allegations of inmate abuse at the Muskogee County Jail.

The FBI suspended its investigation into allegations of inmate abuse at the jail after Frisbie reported being shot.

Frisbie acknowledged Friday that he shot himself and told agents that someone else shot him in an effort to affect the jail abuse investigation.
