A former Warren police officer that made up a shootout story is back in the Trumbull County Jail.

Noah Linnen, 24, was booked into the jail Friday afternoon for a parole violation.

Linnen was paroled in June.

Court records do not say how Linnen violated his parole.

The former Warren cop was initially booked into the Trumbull County Jail in January 2020 on charges of falsification, tampering with evidence, disrupting public services and inducing panic.

The charges stemmed from an incident when Linnen was off duty and became involved in a shootout with the driver of a broken-down SUV along Warren Avenue.

At least ten different agencies responded to his claim and at least 45 officers made traffic stops of SUVs matching the description and suspect.

After being confronted by investigators about his story not adding up, Linnen admitted making up the story.

Linnen was sentenced to nine months in jail following the investigation.
