FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Aive) -- Fort Wayne police officer Mark Rogers will be in court Friday for an initial hearing.

Rogers faces charges of sexual misconduct, official misconduct and false informing.

According to court documents the 19 year police veteran was working a special OWI enforcement patrol on September first, when he reportedly picked up a woman who had passed out in her car and allegedly coerced her into having sex with him on a park bench.

Rogers was arrested earlier this week, and was put on unpaid leave from the force.
