DURANT, Okla. (KXII) -- A Paoli reserve police officer was arrested yesterday accused of sexually assaulting a man with down syndrome.

Choctaw Tribal Police say Bryon Gordon forced the victim to give him oral sex and perform other sex acts.

The victim told investigators that it happened several times when the two would visit the Choctaw Casino hotel in Durant.

Gordon denied the allegations.

"My attorney is certain as soon as the district attorney looks at the report and watches my interview, that the DA will not want to touch those charges," Gordon said.

He is currently out of jail on a $50,000 bond.

Gordon has also served as the Boswell police chief and a Garvin County sheriff's deputy.

This isn't his first time to land on the wrong side of the law.

Gordon pleaded guilty to impersonating a public servant in Grayson County in 2005 and in 1989, Gordon was charged with burglary of a motor vehicle.
