SAN ANTONIO – A San Antonio Police Department lieutenant who told other officers to imagine him having sex with a female sergeant has been suspended 30 days, according disciplinary records obtained by the KSAT 12 Defenders.

Lt. Christopher Johnson was handed the lengthy suspension in early March and has filed a formal appeal, asking for the discipline incident to go before a third-party arbitrator.

While on duty in late October, Johnson told two sergeants and an officer gathered at public safety headquarters to imagine him having sex with one of the sergeants, a female involved in the conversation, discipline paperwork states.

Johnson gave a graphic description of a sexual encounter between him and the female sergeant, according to the paperwork.

SAPD investigators determined the incident violated the department’s rules on prohibited activities.

In a March 11 appeal letter, sent to SAPD by Johnson’s CLEAT attorney, Johnson denied the allegations and claimed the punishment was excessive.

Johnson is scheduled to serve the suspension from April 16 to May 15, according to the paperwork.
