The action comes after Middlesex County prosecutors filed charges Friday against the suspended officers.

David Hughes is charged with falsifying or tampering with records and tampering with public records. His partner, Amanda Felicies, is charged with false swearing for allegedly lying to authorities who were investigating the crash.

Telephone numbers for the officers could not be located Sunday. It also wasn't known if they have retained attorneys.

Prosecutors say the May 2015 crash involved an off-duty officer whose sport utility vehicle was damaged. That officer's name has not been released.

Hughes allegedly filed a false report to protect the unnamed officer. Felicies allegedly gave false information under oath last month.
