An officer with the Baytown Police Department near Houston has been accused of offering to dismiss two traffic tickets for an 18-year-old driver if she sent him nude photos.
Officer Michael Coppock, 33, told the woman he would change two traffic tickets for speeding and an expired registration to warnings in exchange for pictures, according to affidavits obtained by KHOU-TV.
The woman told KHOU that Coppock contacted her on social media about an hour after he pulled her over.
Police said they viewed screenshots of the conversations and described them as “clearly coercive in nature,” according to KHOU.
Coppock didn’t reply to an email from the station seeking comment on the allegations. He hasn’t been charged.
