OHP Trooper arrested, accused of raping woman while on duty

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Highway Patrol has arrested a state trooper accused of raping a Tulsa woman while on duty.

Investigators with the patrol announced Monday they have completed their investigation and found enough evidence to move forward with criminal charges against state trooper Eric Roberts.

State Troopers took Roberts into custody Monday morning at his residence and transported him to the Creek County jail where he faces formal charges of kidnapping and sexual assault crimes.

The 16-year veteran trooper allegedly pulled a woman over without probable cause and then forced the victim to perform sexual acts in his patrol car, before driving to another location where he allegedly raped her.
