TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - A Florida state trooper is sitting in a Leon County jail on $250,000 bail, charged with sexual battery.
Authorities said Charles Odom was arrested late Wednesday night after a woman he pulled over last week in Wakulla County reported the assault.
The arrest followed an investigation into the complaint by the Florida Highway Patrol, Wakulla County sheriff's office and state prosecutors.
Odom has worked for FHP since 2006 after previously working for the Wakulla County sheriff's office.
Highway Patrol officials did not immediately comment on the case.
