JOHNSON CITY – An investigation by Special Agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has led to the indictment of a Kingsport man accused of fabricating evidence in a plot against a Sullivan County detective.

In July, at the request of 2nd District Attorney General Barry Staubus, TBI Special Agents began investigating allegations of misconduct involving a detective with the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office. The allegations were made by Steven L. Bromley (DOB 11-5-66). During the course of the investigation, Agents determined that the accusations made by Bromley were false. Further investigation revealed that Bromley used a female relative in the plot by having her write a statement accusing the detective of sexual assault.

Last week, the Sullivan County Grand Jury returned an indictment charging Bromley with two counts of Fabricating Evidence. Today, he was arrested and booked into the Sullivan County Jail on a $17,500 bond.
