Texas Trooper Fired, Allegedly Propositioned Driver for Sex

A Texas trooper has been fired after being accused of stopping a driver for speeding and offering her $300 to have sex with him.

The Texas Department of Public Safety on Tuesday announced the dismissal of Christopher Champion just hours after his arrest and release.

The 31-year-old Champion was arrested Monday night in San Antonio on charges of misdemeanor soliciting prostitution and official oppression.

Online Bexar County jail records don't list bond or an attorney to speak for Champion, who joined DPS in 2008 and was stationed in San Antonio.

Investigators said Champion on Sept. 17 stopped a woman on Interstate 35, tried to solicit sex, then used her cellphone to text himself her contact information.

She left without getting a ticket but contacted Texas Rangers.
