HOUSTON (AP) — A Houston-area school district has suspended a police officer who prosecutors say demanded to smell the socks and underwear of a woman he pulled over. The Cypress-Fairbanks school district said Monday the officer has been placed on administrative leave. District leaders say they are appalled by the allegations against 26-year-old Patrick Quinn, who has been charged with a misdemeanor.

The Harris County District Attorney’s Office says a woman reported Quinn stopped her vehicle around 3 a.m. on Aug. 11. Quinn said he found a marijuana grinder in the car. Quinn told her he would release her if she let him lick and smell her feet. He then asked for a piece of her underwear. When she complied, he reconsidered and released her.

A call to his attorney wasn’t immediately returned Monday evening.
