Disturbing allegations against officer
The victim told police the officer told her he had a foot fetish

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A former officer with an area school district is accused of misusing his authority when he pulled over a woman and reportedly asked her for sexual favors.

The incident happened back in August. According to court documents, Patrick Quinn, who was a police officer with the Cy-Fair Independent School District, stopped a woman driving along Jones Road in northwest Harris County at about 3am. The woman told police that she wasn't speeding or otherwise breaking the law, but she pulled over.

The woman says that Quinn told her that her insurance was expired and that he smelled marijuana in the car. She denied having drugs, but consented to a search of her car, while she sat in the back of Quinn's patrol car.

Quinn reportedly told the woman he found drug paraphernalia in her car, which she also denied having any knowledge of. Court documents state Quinn then told the woman he has a foot fetish and that he would let her go if she would allow him to smell and lick her feet. If she refused, he threatened to take her to jail.

The woman told police she began to remove her boots when Quinn gave her the option of giving him her underwear. Before she could comply, he reportedly changed his mind and let her go.

Police say they identified Quinn from a fingerprint on the woman's auto insurance card. Quinn, 26, is charged with two counts of official oppression. He is currently out on bond.

Cy-Fair ISD says they put Quinn on paid administrative leave. They issued a statement which reads in part, "We are appalled by the nature of the allegations brought forth against one of our officers."

The Harris County District Attorney's Civil Rights Division believes that Officer Patrick Quinn may have committed this crime before and there could be other victims. Anyone with information is urged to call the Civil Rights Division at 713-755-5800.
