The Chalfont police officer charged with falsely claiming he'd been shot is now free on bail.

Jon Cousin told investigators that he was shot in the chest after pulling up to a suspicious car on Monday.

On Tuesday, Bucks County Authorities said that Cousin staged the entire thing.

Cousin had been held on $150,000 bail.

His attorney says Cousin is extremely remorseful and embarrassed. His lawyer also says he voluntarily admitted himself to the hospital for a full-psychiatric evaluation.
