FOX23 has learned a Tulsa Police Department captain is on administrative duty after allegations surfaced about an inappropriate sexual relationship.
Captain Shawn King told FOX23 he is on administrative duty pending the outcome of an investigation in Osage County. A former girlfriend of King's filed a protective order against him last week. Osage County court officials tell FOX23 the order alleges King had an inappropriate sexual relationship with her daughter. King is cooperating with the investigation and let deputies know where he is to serve the protective order.
In Oklahoma, a judge can issue a protective order based only on what the person requesting it says, no criminal charges have been filed against King. Internal TPD documents confirmed he was suspended for reportedly engaging in sexual activity in his squad car in 2009.
Last week, TPD Chief Chuck Jordan said this was the only allegation made to the department against King and it is a violation of policy. Jordan said no allegation was made to the police department about King about criminal activity.
A hearing for King is scheduled for mid-May. King tells FOX23 he is focused on his job and is ready to get this settled and put it behind him.
