Arkansas State Police Capt. Steven Bryan Davis of Troop H in Fort Smith

An Arkansas State Police captain has resigned amid accusations that he asked undercover Fort Smith detectives to perform a sex act while he watched at a city park earlier this week.

Arkansas State Police Director Col. Bill Bryant received a one-sentence memo Friday from state police Capt. Bryan Davis, 51, of Troop H according to a news release. That resignation was accepted by Bryant and then forwarded to the department's human resources division for processing.

Davis' memo reads: “Please accept this as my letter of resignation from the Arkansas State Police to be effective immediately.”

His resignation comes three days after his arrest Tuesday afternoon on a misdemeanor loitering charge as officers conducted a random check for sexual activity in a parking area of a riverfront trail north of downtown Fort Smith, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette previously reported.

“I am disappointed by the alleged incident that has led to this resignation,” Bryant said in a statement. “However, I believe it is of the utmost importance that we, as law enforcement officers, represent ourselves in an honorable and professional manner, and exhibit higher standards, both in our private lives and in our public duties, exceeding the principles and expectations of others.”

Davis is set to be arranged Sept. 8 on the class C misdemeanor charge. If convicted, that count carries a maximum penalty of 30 days in jail and a fine of up to $500.

It always amazes me (and disgusts me as well) when people who ought to know better, people in the public eye, people in positions of respect, do things like this to so thoroughly disgrace themselves.
