SAVANNA, Okla. (AP) – A former Oklahoma police officer has been arrested on felony warrants alleging sexual battery, forcible sodomy and accepting a bribe.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says 40-year-old former Savanna officer Jerry “Jay” Gragg was arrested Tuesday in McAlester. The Bureau of Investigation says Gragg denies the allegations.

The bureau says Gragg is accused of stopping a woman in January when he was a police officer in Savanna in eastern Oklahoma, telling her she had a suspended driver’s license and forcing her to touch him inappropriately and perform a sex act.

The bureau says the woman later notified police and provided a blouse containing DNA that was later matched to Gragg.
