Top Cop in SJP Case: I Was Just Messin' Around

6/18/2009 10:31 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sarah Jessica ParkerSo how's this for an explanation as to how a police chief allegedly got caught in bed with a tabloid reporter trying to sell out Sarah Jessica Parker?

Martins Ferry Police Chief Barry Carpenter -- the Ohio cop now under investigation for allegedly hatching a plot to burglarize the home of the woman who is carrying SJP's babies -- now says there's a perfectly innocent explanation to all of this. He says he was driving past the home of the surrogate mother one day when he noticed that her front door was open.

According to David Blomquist, a morning radio talk show host at WWVA in West Virginia, the ever-helpful Chief Carpenter told him he went inside to make sure things were ok, and noticed what looked like a plaster of paris cast of the surrogate's stomach. Carpenter says he looked around and left.

For some unexplained reason, Carpenter says he knew a reporter from the National Enquirer was snooping around town so he met up with him, allegedly just to "mess with him and jerk him around."

Apparently, law enforcement didn't see it that way. Investigators tell us there's some hard evidence of a conspiracy to burglarize.

Carpenter told Blomquist his home was searched and nothing was found. He says he's willing to take a polygraph.

This is pretty creepy. Take away his "I was just messing around" and you get, Police Chief enters the home of celebrity surrogate to get personal information for monetary gain, then proactively contacts a tabloid. Attorneys should be lining up to represent the surrogate. She has every right to go after this guy. Does he enter the homes of every single open door as he drives? How did he know this was the address of the surrogate in order to know to contact the tabloid? This is complete betrayal of the public trust as well as a personal violation. If the tabloid had printed her personal information, she could have added damages to the mix.

IDIOT SARAH AND HER FREAKY WORM OF A BUTT-UGLY HUSBAND DECIDED THE PLANET HAD TO HAVE MORE SPAWN FROM HIS LIMP LITTLE PENIS. THEY ARE SICKENING. THEY ARE TOO OLD, TOO. IT'S NOT A HOBBY. IT'S A LONG PROCESS CALLED PARENTHOOD. THEY ARE FREAKS.

THIS CRAP WITH "SURROGATES" IS PATHETIC. I'M SICK OF IT. INSTEAD OF ADOPTING ONE OF A MILLION ORPHANS IN THE WORLD, THEY JUST HAVE TO PAY A POOR WOMAN A VERY MEASLY,UNGENEROUS SUM SO THEY CAN IMPLANT THEIR CRAP IN HER. IMAGINE THAT YOU GET TOLD YOUR REAL MOTHER WAS PAID TO HAVE YOU. THAT IS JUST TOO MUCH. THESE PEOPLE ARE OUT OF TOUCH AND THINK THE WORLD REVOLVES AROUND THEM. THEY ARE JUST GAS-BAGS. AND THIS WORLD IS GETTING MORE IDIOTIC BY THE SECOND.
