The Wise County Sheriff's Office said they received a call about a reported prowler on Smokehouse Court in Newark. According to deputies, when they arrived Chapman appeared to be drunk, naked from the waist down and apparently attempting to enter a residence, which was not his.

Chapman was charged with Public Intoxication and Disorderly Conduct.


Denton PD said the officer has been on military leave for more than two years and has not been working with the department during that time.

Chapman was placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of an investigation.
