San Diego Officer Arrested for Sexual Battery While on Duty

Several alleged victims have come forward


A San Diego police officer was booked into jail Sunday, accused of false imprisonment with violence and sexual battery charges.

Officer Christopher Hays, 30, was taken into police custody after the District Attorney's Office and Hays' attorney negotiated a self-surrender for Sunday afternoon. He posted his $130,000 bail.

Hays is at the center of two investigations for improper pat downs and for getting sexual gratification while doing it.
