Two Louisiana law enforcement officers have been arrested on charges of racketeering for accepting a bribe of over $100,000, and unlawfully arresting an innocent man after planting drugs in his car.
The man accused of paying the bribe is Mark Knight, CEO of major oil and gas company‘Knight Oil Tools’. He and his former employee, Russell Manual, have been notified of the warrants for their arrest.
Allegedly, Mark Knight paid State Trooper Corey Jackson and Sheriff’s Deputy Jason Kinch in exchange for planting containers filled with cocaine and prescription drugs underneath his brother’s car, Bryan Knight, the company’s co-owner. The law enforcers subsequently arrested him in June 2014.
