The former Baton Rouge Police Officer who resigned in February after a woman accused him of inappropriate sexual contact, turned himself in to police Monday.

According to investigators, in early February, Travis Wheeler, 27, Emerson Jackson, 32, and former BRPD officer, Isaac Bolden, walked up to a man and woman parked in a BREC park. The man was reportedly forced to leave. Bolden then allegedly asked the woman to perform a sexual act on him. Reports say the other officers watched.

The officers Travis Wheeler, 27, and Emerson Jackson, 32, turned themselves in Friday afternoon. They were booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish prison. They have bonded out of jail.

According to jail records, Isaac Bolden is already out of jail. He bonded out after being charged with abuse of power.

Bolden resigned from the force later in February after having been with BRPD for just over a year. Emerson and Wheeler were fired after a grand jury indicted them both with abuse of power charges related to a sex act. Both Emerson and Wheeler had been with BRPD for at least five years.

All three former officers face five years in prison if convicted.
