A Chicago police officer has been indicted on federal charges in the FBI's ongoing ''Operation Tow Scam.''

The indictment alleges that Gregory Garibay schemed to defraud two insurance companies by making a false police report of an actual auto accident. It also alleges he staged an auto accident.

In both instances, Garibay allegedly obtained extortion payments from a cooperating tow truck driver.

Garibay is the 10th Chicago police officer to be charged in the corruption probe.
