FRISCO CITY, Ala. (AP) - A south Alabama police chief has been arrested on rape and ethics charges after a 38-year-old woman said he assaulted her when she tried to report a theft.
Monroe County District Attorney Tommy Chapman tells the Press-Register that Frisco City police Chief Ronald Marshall was in the Monroe County jail Friday on $105,000 bond. It wasn't immediately clear whether Marshall had a lawyer.
The woman isn't being identified because she's an alleged victim of sexual assault.
She told investigators she went to the police station Wednesday to report a stolen computer. She said the chief told her to go with him to another location. She said he drove her to a secluded road south of town and raped her in his police cruiser.
Officers on Thursday arrested Marshall, who's 39.
