A West Virginia man has been charged with sexual assault after he allegedly admitted to the crime during a job interview with the police department.

In February, 21-year-old Tyler Ray Price of Nitro, West Virginia was interviewing for a probationary officer job with the South Charleston Police Department. During the interview, Price told an officer that about a sexual encounter he recently had with a drunk woman.

Price also showed the officer a recording of the two having sex.

Later that month, police interviewed the woman in the video, and asked if she had consented to having sex with Price. She told police she had “no knowledge” of having sex with Price until he called to tell her about the incident after his interview.

Price was charged with second-degree sexual assault and assigned $25,000 bond.
