CHP Officer Accused Of Sexually Abusing Disabled Man At Sacto Mall

SACRAMENTO (CBS/AP) — A California Highway Patrol officer has been arrested on suspicion of inappropriately touching a disabled man in a shopping mall bathroom while off-duty.

Sacramento police Officer Doug Morse said 47-year-old Jeffery Closson was booked into jail Friday for investigation of sexual battery and disorderly misconduct. He was released on $5,000 bail.

After a 22-year-old man reported being inappropriately touched while in the Arden Fair Mall restroom on June 20, investigators reviewed surveillance video and eventually identified Closson as a suspect.

CHP spokeswoman Fran Clader said Closson has been placed on administrative duty pending an internal investigation into the matter.

The 25-year veteran was assigned to the air operations division.

A phone number for Closson was not listed.
