(Las Vegas, NV) Solomon Coleman has turned himself in to the Clark County Detention Center as ordered by Judge William Kephart.

The five-year veteran of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Dept. has been charged with a felony and four gross misdemeanors after five women came forward with complaints of inappropriate behavior while on duty dating back to June. Authorities believe there may be other victims.

If Coleman makes bail, which Judge Kephart set at $16,000, he is ordered to remain under house arrest for an unspecified amount of time.

Coleman is 28 years old and has been employed with the LVMPD since February 13, 2008.
He is currently assigned to the Patrol Division, Southeast Area Command.

Coleman will be placed on unpaid administrative leave pending the outcome of his criminal proceedings.
