A woman accused a former Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s officer of following her home, where she said he made sexual advances toward her, according to an offense report obtained by the American Press.
The officer, Michael Dewayne Williams, 24, was indicted on a charge of simple battery Thursday. He was fired from the Sheriff’s Office following an internal investigation that found “policy infractions,” Sheriff Tony Mancuso said.
The investigation was handled by the Lake Charles Police Department.
The offense report said the woman said Williams stopped her after she failed to completely stop at a stop light after leaving College Station, a McNeese Street bar, in the early morning hours of Sept. 15.
She claimed the officer did not ask for her driver’s license, but performed a field sobriety test on her and informed her that he could tell she had been drinking, the report stated.
He told her she was OK to drive, but that he was going to follow her home, she said in the report.
At her home, he asked if he could come inside, where he began kissing her and touching her, she said in the report.
She said he left when she told him her friends would be home soon, according to the report.
The officer told police detectives that when he stopped the woman, she had been crying and had bruises on her upper legs and left forearm, the report said. He said she told him she had a fight with her boyfriend, the report said.
He said she also told him that she was having problems with roommates, which prompted him to follow her home, according to the report.
Once inside, they kissed, but he left when things progressed too far, he said in the report.
