OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma City police officer was charged Friday with 16 counts including first-degree rape and sexual battery after being accused of assaulting at least eight women while on patrol.
Daniel Holtzclaw, 27, also faces charges of forcible oral sodomy and indecent exposure. Holtzclaw, a former standout football player in high school and college, was arrested Aug. 21. He remained in custody on a $5 million cash bond Friday, according to jail records.
He is accused of stopping women, who were all black and between the ages of 34 and 58, while on duty in Oklahoma City. Prosecutors allege that he raped two women and either fondled others or forced them to expose themselves, and police said there may be more victims.

O Captain, My Captain, May he rest in peace,
Peter Pan can now go flying,
Adrian Cronauer has just signed off,
While Batty is sadly crying.
Mrs. Doubtfire has hung up her apron,
The Toymaker put his tools away,
Teddy Roosevelt has turned back into wax,
And Dr. Adams is not in today.
Good Will Hunting will carry your legacy,
But please know Mork, one thing that’s true,
We won’t forget you, no matter What Dreams May Come,
For we ain’t never had a friend like you.
