Trooper Arrested After Officials Discover His Disturbing Craigslist Post

An Ohio state trooper accused of forcing female drivers into sexual acts in exchange for dropping traffic charges reportedly used Craigslist to offer "traffic stop sex" (video below).

In addition to the Craigslist ads, State Trooper Bryan Lee also sent Facebook messages to a female passenger whom he photographed topless, telling her that he had been keeping an eye on her, according to records from the Ohio State Highway Patrol that were released on Aug. 17.

Included in the records is footage from the dashboard camera in Lee's patrol car that launched the investigation on him in October 2013.

Lee can be heard in the video flirting with a female driver and the passenger, whom he photographed, reports WLWT.

He joked about flirting with the two women "once I turn the camera off."

Lee determined the driver was not drunk, so he let her go, but he kept the passenger in his cruiser. Records show he drove to a street near where she lived, told the woman his camera was shut off, and made inappropriate comments about her legs and breasts.

He then reminded her that he could still give the driver a ticket. When the passenger asked what he wanted, he told her he wanted to take a picture of his hand on her breasts.

Lt. Craig Cvetan said that Lee's behavior was inappropriate for a traffic stop.

The video of Lee was discovered during a routine check of dashboard camera recordings.

The passenger said that she received several Facebook messages from the trooper, including one in which he told her that he had seen her at the fair and described what she was wearing.

During the investigation, two postings from Lee were found on Craigslist in which he wrote, "I am in Law Enforcement so if the idea of traffic stop sex sounds good let me know."

Another woman came forward and admitted that she had also performed a sexual act on Lee at a traffic stop.

"He told me to do this, he told me to do that and I basically complied," the woman said. "What else am I going to do in that situation, he's a cop. He has more authority."

In April, Lee was sentenced to five years in federal prison for violating the women's civil rights. He pleaded guilty to one count of cyberstalking involving threatening messages and four counts of violating the civil rights of female motorists.
