AKRON, Ohio -- Former Navy SEAL Chris Heben spoke out Friday morning after being found not guilty of lying to police.

Heben, 45, was accused of lying about being shot in the parking lot of a busy shopping plaza. He told Bath Township police he'd been shot in the abdomen after an altercation in the parking lot of the Mustard Seed Market on Route 18 in Montrose on March 28, 2014.

Detectives maintained that Heben's story didn't add up. He was found not guilty of his charges Wednesday.

On Friday, Heben thanked the jury and said he's ready to move on. "What's done is done.. I want to move forward," he said.

When asked if he hopes police continue to look for his attackers, Heben said he will leave that up to police; however, he said he would love to face his assailants.
