The wife of a former Schaumburg officer accused of leading a drug ring says her husband was the victim of a set-up.

Sarah Hudak told ABC7 news partner "The Daily Herald" that she thought her family was under attack when her husband, Matthew Hudak, was arrested at their home last month. He and two other officers are charged with stealing and reselling illegal drugs seized during arrests.

Sarah Hudak says police handcuffed her for several hours while police searched her home for evidence. She said she's shocked investigators believed an informant who tried to set her husband up.
