OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Oklahoma City police say they are investigating an officer who is alleged to have send lewd pictures to the cell phone of a female employee of the department using his personal cell phone.

Oklahoma City Police Chief Bill Citty would not identify the officer, who he says has been placed on administrative paid leave.

Citty says the officer is a sergeant who has served on the force for more than 14 years.

Citty says the officer's name would not be released until either charges are filed or a disposition is made.

Police Captain Steve McCool says it appears there might have been prior incidents during which the officer was thought to have sent lewd messages to other employees of the department.
