News10NBC is learning more about an investigation into a judge from Waterloo who claimed he was attacked outside his courtroom and hit over the head with a toilet tank lid.

Now, police say they don't think the attack even happened. Investigators say they don't have an credible evidence to support Judge Roger Barto's claim. Barto told police he was hit in the head with a toilet tank lid and choked as he was leaving his courtroom after a late night arraignment in August.

Police say Barto stopped cooperating with the investigation in mid-September.
