VIRGINIA BEACH — Very few details are being released surrounding the arrest of a police officer here.

Police officials, in a news release Wednesday, said “Virginia Beach Police Officer Norman Teague is charged with two counts of forging a public record.”

Authorities said the allegations involve “administrative procedures pertaining to the service of non-arrestable misdemeanor warrants,” last month.

Teague has been with the Virginia Beach Police Department since 2015 and was assigned to the Operations Division, Uniform Patrol.

Officials said he has been reassigned to administrative duties pending the outcome of the criminal and administrative investigations.

The case is being reviewed by the department’s Investigative Division, Office of Internal Affairs and the Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney, officials said.
