Houston police officer indicted for tampering with evidence in road rage case

An officer with the Houston Police Department was relieved of duty after being indicted for tampering with evidence.

On Wednesday, Juan Miguel Ramos, 30, an HPD veteran, was indicted by a Harris County grand jury for tampering/fabricating physical evidence in an April 2021 off-duty road rage incident where no one was injured.

According to officials, Ramos was suspended indefinitely in August 2021 after an HPD Internal Affairs investigation by HPD Chief Troy Finner.

However, after a 185-day suspension, Ramos was reinstated in February 2022 after appealing his suspension, which is allowed by Civil Service law.

Following the indictment, Chief Finner relieved the officer on Wednesday.

HPD will share Ramos’s booking photo when it becomes available.
