A Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District police officer is facing 2 counts of oppression in the city of Houston, Texas.
Prosecutors say 26-year-old Patrick Quinn used his badge and patrol car to try to fulfill his sexual fetishes when pulling over an unidentified woman who was leaving a friends house at the Reserve Apartments on Jones Road recently around 3:00 am.
Quinn allegedly made the young woman get in the back of his patrol car after pulling her over because her tag was expired.
Investigators say Quinn searched her car, then told her he wouldn’t take her to jail if she showed him her feet or gave him her underwear. Quinn ultimately gave up trying to coerce the woman and allowed her to leave.
The next day, the victim contacted authorities. They took her back to the area where she was pulled over amd found her insurance card on the ground with Quinn’s fingerprints on it.
“We are appalled by the nature of the allegations brought forth against one of our officers,” Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District officials said in a statement. “After learning of the allegations, we immediately placed the officer on administrative leave pending the outcome.”
“Allegations of officer misconduct are taken very seriously and we will not tolerate violations of criminal law, inappropriate actions or any unprofessional behavior which compromises the public’s trust or tarnishes the reputation of the department,” school district officials said.
The District Attorney’s office says as a school police officer, Quinn shouldn’t even be making traffic stops, especially at 3 o’clock in the morning. They are asking other victims to come forward.
Neighbors say they would see Quinn’s school-issued car often. “It’s creepy it’s not okay to do that people, if he’s supposed to be protecting us,” neighbor Keya Hilton said.
