Allegations from a Georgia Tech student that an Atlanta police officer demanded a sexual act in return for a ride back to campus following a Halloween party have resulted in an investigation by APD’s Office of Professional Standards and a criminal investigation by the department’s Special Victims Unit.
WAOK reported Wednesday that the male student, who had been drinking, requested from an APD Zone 2 officer a ride back to the Midtown school's campus.
The radio station reported that during the ride, the officer insisted that a sex act be performed in return for the ride to the student’s fraternity house. According to WAOK, an examination of the patrol car resulted in the discovery of bodily fluids, “which correlated with the story of the sex act.”
In an email to Midtown Patch Thursday, APD Sgt. Greg Lyon confirmed that the officer in question is on administrative duty and his gun and badge have been taken away until adjudication of the investigations.
“We are taking these allegations seriously and will get to the bottom of this incident,” wrote Sgt. Lyon.
