CHATTANOOGA (AP) — A Chattanooga police officer has been charged with aggravated statutory rape.
A 17-year-old girl told investigators she and 35-year-old Chad E. Bradley had sex twice while he was on duty.
Bradley is also charged with statutory rape by an authority figure and tampering with evidence.
Chattanooga police and Meigs County investigators interviewed the girl, who told them the relationship started in July.
Bradley was with the Chattanooga Police Department for nine years. A court hearing is set Sept. 18.
Bradley is free on a $25,000 bond. Court records do not show that Bradley has an attorney. He could not be reached by telephone for comment.
