(PITTSBURGH) - Former police Officer Michael L. Boyd, once hailed as a hero cop who was injured when his station house was attacked with gunfire, was acquitted yesterday of charges that he molested a woman after a traffic stop in Hazelwood in 1999.

Boyd, formerly of Jackson, Miss., was fired from the Pittsburgh Police Bureau amid criminal charges of indecent assault and official oppression.

A Homestead woman, 19, told investigators that Boyd, 33, of Perry Hilltop, pulled her over at about 2:30 a.m. Oct. 23, 1999, in Hazelwood.
