ASHEVILLE, N.C. -

The former Greenville police chief is facing accusations he tried to cover up a car wreck involving his son.

The Associated Press is reporting an Asheville police lieutenant filed a complaint with the city manager after he said Police Chief William Anderson tried to "coerce" him into making false statements about the wreck.

On March 9, Chad Anderson was driving his father's car when he wrecked.  Indictments show Anderson left the scene and gave officers a false report of what happened.  He's now facing two felonies. 

Lt. William Wilke with the Asheville Police Dept. says Chief Anderson and a captain tried to convince him to submit a false and misleading accident report.

Asheville police say they're still gathering information about Wilke's allegations.

Anderson served as Chief of Police in Greenville two years ago before taking the job as Asheville's Police Chief.
