Fairfax Co. police officer accused of sexual assault, arrested

WASHINGTON – A Fairfax County police officer is under arrest after being accused of sexually assaulting a woman with whom he had a relationship.

Prince William County police say 55-year-old James Summers, of Burke, Va., is accused of assaulting the 42-year-old woman in her Manassas home in 2009. The investigation began last week when the assault was reported.

Summers, a five year veteran of the Fairfax County Police Department, was relieved of his police powers.

He’s being held without bond until a court appearance in July.
