HARRISBURG — Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett on Thursday night said he's concerned to hear reports on an investigation of his son-in-law, a Philadelphia narcotics police officer.

Several media outlets, citing anonymous sources, reported that Corbett's son-in-law is being probed by the FBI and police Internal Affairs.

Corbett said: “I was surprised and concerned to learn about the allegations regarding my son-in-law Gerold Gibson. Susan and I continue to give our family our love and support.”

The Philadelphia Police Department said Thursday an officer was placed on administration leave as a result of an investigation but gave no details. The officer's name wasn't released because he was not arrested or charged with a crime.

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
