NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (AP) -- A Newport News police officer accused of standing nude on a porch has been charged with indecent exposure.
Police spokesman Lou Thurston says Newport News officers arrested 41-year-old Christopher Roush on Sunday morning.
Thurston said Monday in a news release that witnesses told police a man was standing nude on the front porch of a residence. One officer saw a nude man shut the front door as he approached the residence.
Roush was released on his signature. An arraignment is set for April 24 in Newport News General District Court.
Thurston says Roush has been with the police department for nine years. The department's Professional Standards Office will conduct and administrative investigation.
