A Department of Public Safety officer faces almost four years in prison for allegedly asking a woman to expose herself during a traffic stop, authorities said Monday.
Chris Young, 28, of Williams, Ariz., was charged with one count of bribery of a public servant, according to the Arizona Attorney General’s Office.
The Attorney General’s office said that Young made the proposal in April 2006 after stopping Kyle Parcell, of Temecula, Calif, for speeding on Interstate 40 in Yavapai County.
During the traffic stop, Young allegedly asked Parcell’s passenger, Myrla Ryan Brock, to expose herself with the understanding that “Young’s opinion, judgment, exercise of discretion or other action as a police officer might be influenced.”
Young is a nine-year DPS veteran. He resigned in November 2006.
He’s scheduled to appear in the Yavapai County Superior Court on Tuesday. If convicted, Young faces a maximum sentence of 3.75 years in prison.
