Ex-CMU Cop Accused Of Forcing Women To Bare Chests
MOUNT PLEASANT (WWJ/AP) – A former Central Michigan University police officer is accused of driving two women from a bar to a remote dirt road and convincing them to show him their bare chests.
The Morning Sun of Mount Pleasant reports that 34-year-old Jeffery Allen Card of Mount Pleasant has been charged with misconduct in office in connection with the Sept. 11 incident.
Authorities accuse Card of taking the 21-year-old women to the location and giving them portable breath tests. Court documents say Card told them they had to show him their chests if the results were higher than a limit he set.
According to court documents, both women agreed, and when the test results were higher than the limit Card allegedly set, they flashed him. Investigators say the women believe Card took advantage of them because they were drunk.
Court documents also show that the women agreed to pose for a photograph for Card on the back of the patrol car. During an investigation, that photo was later found on Card’s cell phone.
University Police Chief Bill Yeagley said Card resigned last Friday.
Card is scheduled to be in court next Thursday. If convicted, he faces up to five years in prison.
