A New Mexico television station has obtained a surveillance photo of Officer Bert Lopez performing sex acts on a woman on the hood of a car in broad daylight.
In the photo taken at Santa Fe Canyon Ranch, Officer Bert Lopez can bee seen still wearing his full uniform, including his utility belt.
Officer Bert Lopez has been honored once as New Mexico State Police Officer of the Year and received an commendation as having gone above and beyond the call of duty. (It's true!)
Now, he's on paid administrative leave and facing possible disciplinary action for an incident that has caused embarrassment to the department.
Police confirmed that an internal investigation has been completed and that the officer has been on paid leave for the past several weeks.
