A West Virginia man applying to be a police officer is now facing charges after allegedly admitting to sexual assault during the job interview.
Tyler Ray Price of Nitro was arraigned Monday on charges of second-degree felony sexual assault.
Official with the South Charleston Police Department said the charges stem from an incident he allegedly told officers about during a job interview last month, according to WSAZ TV.
The 21-year-old suspect was applying to be a probationary police officer when he allegedly mentioned that he had recorded a video of a sexual encounter with a woman who was passed out from drinking, according to WV MetroNews.
It’s unclear how the subject came up during the interview process.
Department officials contacted the woman a few weeks later, and asked her if she had consented to sex with Price. She told police she did not consent to sex, but had consumed a lot of alcohol the evening she went out with Price, according to WCHS TV.
She said she had been unaware Price had filmed the encounter, until he called her a few hours after his job interview to tell her about it.
Price has since been released from the South Central jail after posting $25,500 bond.
