Walsh tells The Daily Item of Lynn "The bulk of the allegation is untrue" and disputes the officer's report. Walsh, a 40-year department veteran, says he's a defense attorney and would never counsel a client to answer such a question from police.

He's on paid leave and is due back in court May 10.
