Cop arrested; accused of sexual battery

A San Diego police officer has been arrested for investigation of false imprisonment and sexual battery of four women.

U-T San Diego reports Officer Christopher Hays' arrest came as two more women claimed that he sexually harassed or assaulted them.

Police Chief Bill Landsowne says the 30-year-old officer turned himself in Sunday and was booked into jail. He was released on $130,000 bail.

Landsowne says the case against Hays came after a woman filed a report in December. He says prosecutors were investigating claims by the two women who came forward over the weekend.

Hays could face up to 7 1/2 years in jail if convicted. He has been placed on unpaid administrative leave.
