“And then one day there came to be a creature whose genetic material was in no major way different from the self-replicating molecular collectives of any of the other organisms on his planet, which he called Earth. But he was able to ponder the mystery of his origins, the strange and tortuous path by which he had emerged from star-stuff. He was the matter of the cosmos, contemplating itself. He considered the problematical and enigmatic question of his future. He called himself Man. He was one of the starfolk. And he longed to return to the stars.” — Carl Sagan

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.

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.
