COLUMBUS, Ohio — Columbus Police Officer Gregory Stevens was trying to reconcile with his former girlfriend when he illegally searched for information about her new boyfriend on a confidential police database, an internal investigation found.

The division filed internal charges against Stevens in 2007 for unbecoming conduct and untruthfulness. Investigators determined that he had harassed or stalked his ex-girlfriend even after she sought a protection order against him, which they noted is a fourth-degree felony.
