A decorated Peoria police officer who was just acquitted of criminal sexual assault earlier this month is facing a new criminal complaint.
Officer John McCavitt was arrested last Friday night.
According to court records McCavitt was charged Sunday with unauthorized video taping.
He was released on $100,000 bond.
Police say the alleged incident occurred last year at McCavitt’s residence in Peoria, but didn’t’ reveal any further details.
Police say the arrest comes as a result of criminal evidence uncovered during an internal investigation into the off-duty activities of McCavitt.
Police say McCavitt is on administrative leave pending the conclusion of this current criminal investigation and internal investigation.
