SPRING HILL, Tenn. (WKRN) – A former Spring Hill police officer faces indictments for a second time in two months on charges of sex-related offenses while on duty.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said Monday night its investigation into Christopher Odom began after receiving allegations of sexual battery and official misconduct while on duty.

Odom was previously indicted on rape, sexual battery, and two counts of official misconduct and subsequently arrested on Oct. 3. He is accused of pulling two adult females in two separate incidents and initiating sexual contact during traffic stops.

The TBI says their investigation further revealed Odom also stopped a woman in September 2015 while working as an officer in Spring Hill and followed her to her Williamson County home before making her engage in sexual contact.

The grand jury returned more indictments Monday, charging the 26-year-old with two additional counts of rape and two counts of misconduct.

Odom turned himself in this afternoon and was booked at the Williamson County jail on a $150,000 bond.

He is no longer employed by the Spring Hill police department.
