A Florida deputy with almost two decades on the force was arrested Friday for grabbing the genitals of a man he was training, then demanding oral sex, telling the trainee that he “owed” him for training him how to write reports.
Polk County sheriff’s deputy Scott Walker was armed when he reached under the man’s shorts and underwear and fondled his genitals.
When the trainee resisted his advances, Walker shoved him against the wall, locked the door of the room they were in and turned off the lights.
He then approached the victim with his pants partially down, according to the Ledger.
The trainee panicked and began sending text messages to a friend, which is what prompted Walker to allow him to leave.
The incident took place Wednesday and Walker was arrested Friday, which was when he resigned, according to a press release from the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.
A judge set Walker’s bond at $30,000.
