Body camera video refutes rape claim against Texas state trooper

Video footage from a Texas state trooper’s body camera refuted sexual-assault claims a woman made against the trooper after she was pulled over for allegedly driving while intoxicated, CBS Dallas station KTVT reports. Sherita Dixon-Cole, 37, accused the trooper of raping her during the traffic stop south of Dallas over the weekend.

The Texas Department of Public Safety released nearly two hours of footage from the accused trooper’s body camera Tuesday night.

Dixon-Cole’s lawyer said that the officer “should be cleared of any wrongdoing” and apologized for the false accusations.
