PITTSBURG COUNTY, Okla. (KTUL) — A former Oklahoma police officer is facing sexual assault charges stemming from a January traffic stop.

Jerry “Jay” Gragg Jr. was arrested Tuesday by a Pittsburg County deputy and special agents with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigations at the OSBI McAlester field office.

Gragg is being charged with one count of forcible sodomy, two counts of sexual battery and one count of an officer accepting a bribe.

According to OSBI, a woman made allegations against Gragg following a Jan. 21 traffic stop when he worked as a police officer for the Pittsburg County town of Savanna.

During the traffic stop, OSBI says Gragg told the female driver she had a suspended license and unless she paid her fine in full he would take her to jail. When she didn’t have enough money, he made sexual advances toward her.

After the encounter, OSBI says the woman spoke to friends and her pastor, then came forward with the allegations, producing a blouse she was wearing during the traffic stop. OSBI matched DNA from the woman’s shirt to Gragg, who provided a sample during an earlier interview at which time he denied all allegations.

After his arrest Tuesday, Gragg was booked into the Pittsburg County Jail.
