Military record of Holly Springs officer injured in parade questioned

ATLANTA (CBS46) -

The military record of a former Holly Springs police officer has come into question.

Shane Ladner and his wife, Meg, were injured in November 2012 when a Veteran's Day Parade float they were riding on was struck by a train in Texas.

Shane Ladner injured his back and Meg Ladner sustained a shattered pelvis and lost her left leg.

Shane Ladner was chosen to be in the parade by Show of Support, out of Midland, TX, to be recognized for his military service after being wounded in combat in Iraq.

The parade is an annual event that honors veterans through the Hunt for Heroes program.

However, now there are allegations that Shane Ladner was never injured during his military service.

Shane Ladner was also recently terminated from the Holly Springs Police Department.

The department released the following statement:

"Following Shane Ladner's tragic accident on Nov. 15, 2012 in Midland Texas, he was unable to return to work. The city of Holly Springs opted to fill the vacancy in the police department in early April 2013. As a result, Mr. Ladner's employment with the city was separated effective April 5, 2013.

"We are aware of the allegations of false documents against Shane Ladner related to his military service. We are investigating what jurisdiction may have authority over these said allegations. We have been in contact with the local, state and federal agencies that would have authority to bring forward potential criminal charges and prosecution once all evidence is presented."

CBSAtlanta.com will have more information as it becomes available.
