An Oklahoma City police officer was formally charged with sexual assault and sodomy after he forced several women to perform sexual acts or expose themselves to him while he was on patrol between February and June of this year, according to court documents made public on Friday.
Daniel Ken Holtzclaw, a 27-year-old former college football star who had been on patrol for just 18 months, remains in the Oklahoma County jail in lieu of $5- million bond, documents show.
Holtzclaw was arrested last week after a months-long investigation revealed that while he was on duty, he repeatedly stopped women and forced them to expose themselves or have sex with him, prosecutors said last week.
Holtzclaw was placed on leave in June when a woman claimed he forced her to perform oral sex during a traffic stop, prosecutors have said.
Holtzclaw was on patrol alone when most of the assaults occurred, a police department spokesman previously told the Los Angeles Times. In Oklahoma City, police normally patrol without a partner and the city's police cruisers do not have dashboard cameras.
