A lawsuit filed Monday accuses an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper of pulling a woman over last month, making her perform sexual acts while he drove his patrol vehicle, then stopping and raping her at a secluded location.
The trooper named in the lawsuit, Eric Roberts, was identified by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol last week as having been suspended on July 24 for allegations of misconduct, Capt. George Brown said.
The lawsuit filed in federal court in Tulsa asks for a jury trial, noting that Roberts, who is being investigated by members of OHP’s Troop Z, the investigative division, has not yet been charged.
The alleged incident occurred July 22, according to Kevin Adams, an attorney representing the 28-year-old woman who said she was attacked.
