A sheriff’s deputy from Missouri was arrested at his hotel early Tuesday morning after he attempted to force a woman to have sex with him in the bathroom of a local bar, police said.

Lucian James Nevatt, 24, of Nixa, Mo., is charged with one count of sexual battery, a misdemeanor, according to a Richmond County sheriff’s jail committal.

Mr. Nevatt followed a woman into the bathroom at The Loft, 927 Broad St., and “forced himself on her" in a sexual manner, a sheriff’s report said.

The 21-year-old victim said she tried repeatedly to leave the room — stating that they couldn’t because she was married and it was illegal to have sex in a public bathroom — to which the suspect replied that it was “OK because he was a cop,” the report said.

Mr. Nevatt is a deputy with the Stone County Sheriff’s Office, according to the report.

The suspect was removed from the bar and later arrested at his room in the Marriott Hotel.

I think they should have announced that he's a cop when they took him down to 401 since he was so quick to say so while committing the offence

Doesn't NO really mean YES?

Doesn't NO really mean YES? Obama tells us that Democrats are NOT wanting to take over health care, when we all know that they fully intend to. Obama told us NO lobbyists would work in the administration, but when they apply they hear YES. I'm confused..............

So the victim told him.. "The 21-year-old victim said she tried repeatedly to leave the room — stating that they couldn’t because she was married and it was illegal to have sex in a public bathroom " I wonder is she flirted and teased him giving him the idea that she was inviting him for more. If she really is married I would think she wouldn't want to do that because she loves her husband... not just because she IS married and it is illegal.

I'm not defending the deputy.

I'm not defending the deputy. But women giving men the wrong signal at a bar has happened more than once.

she has a husband who's secure enough in their relationship that she doesn't have to have a chaperone.. much like the relationship my wife and I have... my wife goes out to several bars downtown, by herself quite frequently..

I think it matters very much

I think it matters very much what she said and did before the incident. If this story happend how it was written, then yes the deputy is in the wrong. But females AND males need to be mindful of the signals and actions they give to others....Especially when alcohol may be involved.

Who said she wasn't in the bar WITH her husband? Was he supposed to follow her into the restroom? We don't know if he was there or not. Stop jumping to conclusions!

Frank, no woman needs to go

Frank, no woman needs to go to bars alone. Sorry, if I'm old fashioned, but I've learned that if you put yourself or someone else in temptations way, eventually, inevitably temptation wins. A married woman can drink at home with her husband, and if there's something THAT important at a BAR, he should accompany her. MORALS and COMMON SENSE.

NEone, if her husband had been there, I'm sure she would have told the perpetrator that, and the police.

GAC, you don't need to

GAC, you don't need to apologize for being "old fashioned." As TJ Hooker used to say, "I've seen the Past and it worked."

1) my wife knows well enough

1) my wife knows well enough how to take care of herself so she can go anywhere she chooses by herself 2) our morals and "common sense" don't require that I watch over her constantly as I'm fully confident she won't be "tempted away" 3) it's likely living with someone that thinks in such and "old fashioned" (as you put it) manner might likely create more longing for temptation than living in a TRUSTING relatioinship..
