Another Texas lawman is on the other side of the law and accused of being a sexual predator.
Alejandro Gutierrez, an officer at the Rio Grande City Police Department, was arrested by fellow officers and Texas Rangers after a woman reported he sexually assaulted her.
The victim reported to the station on Sunday afternoon and reported that Gutierrez had detained her for an outstanding warrant and forced her to perform oral sex before driving her home, according to Police Chief Dutch Piper.
“We immediately called the Texas Rangers and the DA’s Office so they could do an outside investigation,” Piper said. “We had him at the police department and he was arrested and charged.”
Gutierrez is facing one count of sexual assault, one count of official oppression and one count of civil rights violation of a person in custody. After an arraignment hearing on Monday morning, bond for Gutierrez was set at $35,000.
