A former North Texas police sergeant has been accused of sexually assaulting a woman he arrested on a traffic violations warrant.
A Tarrant County grand jury Wednesday indicted ex-Dalworthington Gardens police Sgt. Bobby Beasley on a charge of sexual assault.
An attorney for Beasley said he's innocent.
The woman said Beasley, in December 2010, was wearing civilian clothing but his badge and gun were displayed when he came to arrest her at her Fort Worth home on an outstanding warrant.
She allegedly was molested while in a vehicle with Beasley while driving between Dalworthington Gardens and Fort Worth, The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
The paper said the woman, when reporting the incident last April, told police she feared no one would believe her because she's black and Beasley is white.
Beasley resigned when the allegations began public. If convicted, he could face 20 years in prison.
Details on the traffic case weren't immediately available.
