Memphis Officer Charged After Traffic Stop

CREATED Apr 18, 2014

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Memphis police said an officer has been charged with sexual battery after an encounter with a woman at a traffic stop.

The Memphis Police Department said Friday that 30-year-old Meeko Evans inappropriately touched the woman's breasts before releasing her from the February 11 traffic stop.

After receiving a complaint, the internal affairs unit conducted an investigation and charged Evans, who has been with the department since January 2011.

Online court records do not show if Evans has a lawyer.
