Long Island, New York (The Weekly Vice) - Garret Mannerz, a 34-year-old Long Island police officer was jailed after he allegedly bribed a woman to fondle his penis in order to avoid a ticket.
According to the Nassau County Police Department, Mannerz, a 5 1/2 year veteran of the force, pulled over three women in their early 20s on February 27th. He then performed a sobriety test on the driver.
Mannerz then allegedly ordered one of the female passengers to step out of the car..
Investigators say Mannerz commenting on the passenger's attire and then asking for her number - which she gave to him. He then stated that if she "did something for him" he would let them go with a warning.
That's when he allegedly grabbed the woman's wrist, forced her to touch him in a sexual manner, then arranged a date with her.
After the women drove away, Mannerz allegedly began calling the woman numerous times - suggesting sexual things they could do on their "date."
During one call, the woman recorded her conversation with Mannerz - which she then turned over to police for review.
Mannerz was booked into jail and charged with sexual abuse, coercion, bribe, and official misconduct. If convicted, he could face up to seven years in prison.
Police believe there may be other victims. Anyone who may have had similar incidents with Mannerz is asked to call the DA’s Public Corruption Bureau at 516-571-210.
