An Illinois State Police trooper was charged Thursday and accused for a second time of forcing people to remove their clothes to avoid prosecution.
Jeremy Dozier, 31, was arrested late Thursday morning on official misconduct charges stemming from an April 29 incident in Gurnee.
Dozier, who has been a state trooper for 10 years, faces similar charges in Cook County for a June 16 incident along the Edens Expressway and Route 41.
In both cases, officials said, Dozier forced the young couples he encountered to disrobe and run around in exchange for Dozier not citing them for what he said was illegal activity.
