Joseph Wild has been indicted by a Multnomah County Grand Jury on multiple counts of harassment and official misconduct. Wild was arrested at the Justice Center in downtown Portland on June 12, 2009, after an extensive criminal investigation conducted by Portland Police Detectives.

Even though Wild has resigned from the Portland Police Bureau, there is still an ongoing criminal investigation with the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office.
