Man accused of doctoring photo of men desecrating grave of fallen cop

A Tennessee man was arrested for allegedly creating a doctored photo of two men desecrating the grave of a fallen law enforcement officer, authorities said.

Joshua Garton, 28, is accused of sharing the harassing photograph targeting the late Sgt. Daniel Baker of the Dickson County Sheriff’s Office, who was gunned down in the line of duty in 2018, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

Prosecutors sought an investigation into the photo, which was circulating on social media.

After members of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation visited Baker’s resting place on Friday, they determined the image was fake, authorities said.

Investigators determined Garton made the picture and charged him with harassment.
