Parkland Police Officer Arrested on Rape Charge

Authorities say a Parkland Hospital police officer was arrested on a rape charge over the weekend, WFAA reports. An altercation between a woman in the parking lot and officer Keivon Gamble, 28, led police to make the arrest.

Gamble was booked into Dallas County jail on a rape charge and two assault charges, and is accused of raping and assaulting the woman earlier this month. Police say he is accused of pulling the woman’s hair, punching her to cause bruising, and forcing her to have sex with him, WFAA reports.

Gamble, a former TCU football player, is on administrative leave pending the investigation. Read more at WFAA here.
