NM cop having sex on car hood won't be charged
Following an internal investigation, the agency does not believe a crime occurred
SANTA FE, N.M. — He's in uniform and apparently on duty. But New Mexico State Police say the officer caught on camera having sex with a woman on the hood of a car did not commit a crime.
Video from a security camera of the encounter at the county-owned Canyon Ranch surfaced about two weeks ago.
State police spokesman Tim Johnson tells KQRE-TV an internal investigation has been done and the agency does not believe a crime occurred. He also says the officer will not be cited for lewd behavior.
Johnson declined to release the name of the officer, but KQRE reports he is an eight-year veteran of the department who's currently on administrative leave.
