YORKTOWN, Texas (AP) - A South Texas police chief has been suspended pending an investigation into allegations that he asked a woman to show him her breasts in exchange for earning credit toward community service.

The Victoria Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/2aeikUl ) that longtime Yorktown police Chief Paul Campos was suspended and placed on leave Saturday. A police lieutenant also was suspended and a search warrant indicates he was present one of the times Campos allegedly asked the woman to reveal herself.

The woman met with Texas Rangers last month and her allegations led to a search of police offices in Yorktown, about 70 miles southeast of San Antonio.

The suspensions leave the town with only one officer and the DeWitt County sheriff’s office is helping with patrols.

Campos has not returned a request by the Advocate for comment.
