Officer Accused Of Soliciting Sexual Favors To Drop Tickets

BAY ST. LOUIS (WLOX) -- A Bay St. Louis police officer is under investigation after a woman says he offered to drop traffic tickets in exchange for sexual favors.

Bay Police Chief Tom Burleson confirmed the investigation to WLOX News, but did not identify the officer or the woman. Burleson told WLOX News he only recently learned of the alleged impropriety and immediately launched an investigation.

The incident allegedly took place last June after the woman was stopped for an expired license tag and had no proof of insurance.

Burleson wouldn't comment on whether the woman ever paid the initial tickets. But last month, she was arrested on a warrant for the unpaid tickets issued.
