Officer Charged in Pittsburg

PITTSBURG, Kan. - Authorities arrest one of their own after a Pittsburg Police Officer is accused of inappropriately interacting with a woman in custody.

Jessie Edward Loren Davis surrendered to the Crawford County jail yesterday after a warrant was put out for his arrest.

On August 26, Davis and another officer responded to a domestic disturbance call where a male and female were involved in an altercation.

The female reported that while she was being transported, Davis asked her to show him her breasts and allow him to touch them.

She says the officer told her he would manipulate the domestic violence report and possibly help her get out of charges associated it.

Davis is charged with one count of aggravated sexual battery and one count official misconduct.  He posted his $25,000 bond.

Crawford County Sheriff's office continues to investigate the situation.
