Trooper released from assignment after complaint

NORMAN — Oklahoma City – The Oklahoma Highway Patrol confirms a troop-level review of allegations brought forth against State Trooper Daniel Martin.

A complaint alleges during the first few days of the Cadet Lawman academy, Martin showed an inappropriate adult photo, not of himself, to a fellow trooper. The incident was reported to Academy staff, who decided since Trooper Martin’s son was attending the academy, it would be best to release Martin from this special assignment. The finalization of the incident is pending.

This matter was between peers only and at no time was Martin ever accused of any type of sexual misconduct with any teen attending the Cadet Lawman Academy. According to an OHP press release, there have been no allegations of physical contact or direct inappropriate behavior between Martin and attending members of the Cadet Lawman Academy.

This matter is being handled at the troop level and the Chief of Patrol is awaiting a final report from an OHP lieutenant who serves as Academy Commandant.
