BROWNWOOD, Texas (AP) - A police officer has been accused of having sex with a 15-year-old girl.

The teen is a member of a law enforcement program for teenagers.

Authorities say 53-year-old Sergeant Vince Ariaz, who has worked for the Brownwood department for the past 17 years, was arrested early Tuesday on a charge of sexual assault of a child and was suspended from duty.

A Brown County jail spokesman refused to say whether Ariaz was in the facility last night, referring questions to officials who were not immediately available. A phone listing for Ariaz was not available.
