A Maryland state trooper was indicted this week for allegedly forcing a woman to have sex with him at gunpoint.

Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Angela Alsobrooks said that Trooper Brian Tucker picked up the woman in his personal car on July 6, 2015, and the two agreed to have sex, WUSA reported.

Tucker reportedly drove the woman to a secluded industrial area, where the two engaged in consensual sex. But when the woman refused to have anal intercourse, Tucker pointed his service weapon at her head and raped her, according to the indictment.

Tucker’s vehicle was noticed by a Prince George’s County police officer on patrol in the area, who took the trooper into custody after the woman explained what happened.

The trooper was charged with a first-degree sex offense, a second-degree sex offense and using a handgun in commission of a crime. He also faces charges for first- and second-degree assault.

Tucker was released on $500,000 bond. The Maryland State Police have suspended him without pay.
