Three police officers in Edison, N.J. have been accused of conspiring against a police officer in North Brunswick, N.J. who arrested one of their friends for drunk driving.

Michael Dotro (pictured), Victor Aravena and William Gesell were charged with fourth-degree conspiring to retaliate, according to The Star-Ledger.

While no actions were taken by the three officer, prosecutors say the cops planned to try to dig up some dirt on the North Brunswick police officer via state computers.

Gesell and Aravena were suspended without pay, but Dotro was already suspended without pay as he faces several criminal counts, including arson and attempted murder, from May 2013.

According to CBS New York, Dotro allegedly tried to burn down the home of Edison Police Capt. Mark Anderko.

Dotro was reportedly angry at Capt. Anderko for moving him from the night shift to days and ordering him to undergo a psychology evaluation.

Anderko was in his home with his wife, children and mother during the alleged crime, but all made it out alive.
