Alabama Cop Accused of Sexually Assaulting Man at Gunpoint After Noise Complaint
Officer Deonte Lashawn Hamner of the Montgomery Police Department was arrested and charged with sexual assault after he stopped a man on a noise complaint on June 9th. According to the arrest report, he then forced the driver to perform oral sex on him at gunpoint.
It’s not actually clear in the account posted at KCTV5.com whether a real noise complain was made or if that was just used as an excuse to stop his victim. In the video (embedded below) at their site, they describe the incident as Ofc. Hamner having, “abused his power to take advantage of another man,” which implies that the latter might be the case.
