Officials say a Wilmington, Delaware police officer has been arrested on bigamy and forgery charges.

Police say 45-year-old Wilbur Justice married a woman in September of last year even though he was already married to another woman since August 2008.

Authorities notified the police when a background investigation of Justice revealed that he was married to two women at the same time.

According to police, Justice indicated on the 2012 marriage application that he was not married.

He has been suspended from the police force without pay pending the outcome of the investigation.
