NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Misdemeanor charges have been filed against an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper accused of using state records to harass women.
Cleveland County court records indicate 40-year-old Rodney Lynn Rideaux was charged Wednesday with five counts of unauthorized use of Oklahoma’s law enforcement telecommunication system.
Court records allege that Rideaux used state resources to run license plates and names of women he was interested in or had relationships with between September 2017 and May 2018. Court records don’t indicate whether Rideaux has an attorney who can speak on his behalf.
Highway Patrol officials said in a statement that they are aware the charges have been filed and that Rideaux has been placed on administrative leave.
Rideaux is also a former University of Oklahoma football player and strength and conditioning coach.
