Houston - Houston-area authorities say they believe a school district police officer who pulled over a motorist and then asked to smell her feet may have made similar demands of others.

Twenty-six-year-old Patrick Quinn is charged with two counts of "official oppression". He's free on $2 000 bond.

The district attorney's office says Quinn stopped the woman in August and said he found marijuana paraphernalia. Authorities say Quinn told her he has a foot fetish and would release her if she let him smell her feet.

He later said he wouldn't need to smell them if she gave him her underwear. Investigators say he then changed his mind and let her go.

Quinn has been suspended by the Cypress-Fairbanks school district.

A call to his attorney wasn't immediately returned on Tuesday.
