Warren officer suspended for alleged inappropriate texts with high school student

A Warren police officer is on paid suspension after allegedly sending inappropriate texts to a teenager. 

Warren police commissioner Bill Dwyer said the texts were sexual in nature with a 16-year-old high school student, and described them as "explicit." 

We're told the parents found out about the messages and reported them to police. The officer was placed on administrative leave last Friday. 

Police did not give the officer's name but say the officer has been on the force for eight years. 

A discplinary hearing is scheduled for Thursday. The disciplinary action could range from suspension to termination.
