Police said during an interview for the officer’s job Feb. 8, Price, 31, admitted he’d been out drinking with a woman, had a sexual encounter with her, then used his phone to record her, according to a report by WCHS TV.

Police later interviewed the victim who said she never consented and had no memory of the sexual encounter or being videotaped.
