HOUSTON (AP) - A Houston-area school district police officer has been charged with misdemeanor official oppression after he was accused of demanding to smell the socks and underwear of a woman he had stopped.

Patrick Quinn is free on $2,000 bond after his weekend arraignment. In a statement, the Harris County District Attorney’s Office says a woman reported Quinn, an officer with the Cypress-Fairbanks school district, stopped her vehicle Aug. 11 and said he smelled marijuana in it. After a search, Quinn said he found a marijuana grinder. The woman denied it was hers.

Quinn told her he’d release her if she’d let him smell her feet, then asked for a piece of her underwear. When she handed it to him, he reconsidered and released her.

A call to his attorney wasn’t returned.
