BARTOW, Fla. (970 WFLA) - A Lakeland police officer has surrendered at the Polk County jail after he was charged with armed sexual battery.
Officer Julio Pagan is accused of forcing a woman to have sex with him while he was in uniform, on the clock.
Pagan has been on paid administrative leave since September 20th. He's been a patrol officer with LPD since 2011.
The department says this incidence had nothing to do with the LPD sex scandal that forced the termination and resignation of a number of officers.
