Incident Description
In 2011, Officer Butchike arrested a woman in relation to a fraud investigation. Between late July and September 18th of that year, he was accused of sending sexually explicit and inappropriate text messages to the woman that were unrelated to his investigation. A complaint was launched by the woman in late 2011, and Butchike was charged with insubordination as well as discreditable conduct, with a deceit charge later added for his handling of the resulting EPS Professional Standards Investigation. Butchike quit his job with EPS in May 2014 just minutes before his disciplinary hearing was due to begin.
