A New Castle County police officer has been charged with unlawful sexual contact in the third degree, county police said Wednesday.
Multiple outlets have identified the officer as Robert Grover, 32, and said the incident occurred Saturday at Dover Downs Hotel and Casino. “Gaming enforcement agents said they spoke to multiple witnesses of the alleged crime and captured video surveillance,” WDEL reported.
The misdemeanor charge follows an off-duty incident involving an eight-year veteran of the department.
Due to the location of the incident, a criminal investigation was conducted by Delaware State Police, and the officer was charged.
The officer has been placed on administrative leave with pay as the investigation is conducted.
