Ex-police officer for White Mountain Apache Tribe indicted

Glenn Cromwell, a former police officer for the White Mountain Apache Tribe of Arizona, has been indicted for civil rights violations.

According to federal prosecutors, Cromwell took 29-year-old Anthony Archuela to a remote area of the reservation and abandoned him in freezing weather. He did the same to 56-year-old Barry Lowe, authorities said.

Both incidents occurred in December 2008. Cromwell is no longer employed as a tribal officer.
