Assault on correctional officer a fabrication, authorities say
Plumas County sheriffís deputies and investigators responding to claims by High Desert State Prison correctional officer Todd Posch that he was the victim of a hit-in-run in front of his residence in Greenville Wednesday morning determined "Poschís allegations were false and fabricated" according to a press release signed by Sheriff Greg Hagwood.
