OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma Highway Patrol has arrested a state trooper accused of raping a Tulsa woman while on duty, KFOR reported.

Investigators with the patrol announced Monday they have completed their investigation and found enough evidence to move forward with criminal charges against state trooper Eric Roberts.

At a press conference Monday, OHP said there are three assault victims and three other questionable traffic stops. TrooperPicsComb

Investigators say the 16-year veteran trooper allegedly pulled them over in Creek County near Sapulpa with the intent to sexually assault them.

During all of those stops, officials say Trooper Roberts turned off his camera and microphone.
