Lubbock Police Officer Resigns After Sexual Misconduct Allegations

"Certainly a disgrace and embarrassment to everybody down here," said Lubbock Police Chief Claude Jones, reeling from a black eye on the department. Officer Blake Littlejohn resigning after allegations of sexual misconduct. "We are currently conducting a criminal investigation into the matter," he said.

Sunday morning, 1 a.m., 19th and avenue L. A car with four people is pulled over for speeding by Officer Blake Littlejohn. After some discussion, the driver, a 20-year-old Hispanic female, returns to the officer's car with him, where allegedly, some sort of sexual conduct occurs. There is no report of the actual stop, but in the ensuing days a witness comes forward with a tale of wrongdoing. "He chose to resign after those allegations were brought forth," says Jones.

At the home of Littlejohn, a beleaguered woman answered the door. "Is Mr. Littlejohn home?," asked NewsChannel 11. "No, and we don't want any," she said. "No comment?," we asked. "No," she replied.

"We still have a little bit of investigation to do," said Jones. Littlejohn had been with the force for two years and had no previous record of disciplinary action. The department hopes to conclude the investigation next week.
