Former NFL linebacker Khaseem Green says in a lawsuit that police and prosecutors in New Jersey knew a shooter had lied about getting a weapon from the player, but charged him anyway. A gun charge against Greene was dropped in July after an audio recording surfaced of the other man telling detectives he lied about Greene’s involvement in a shooting outside a nightclub in Elizabeth in December 2016. The Kansas City Chiefs released Greene the day charges against him were reported. The suit, filed Tuesday, May 8, 2018, names the Elizabeth Police Department, and the Union County Prosecutors Office.
