HPD Officer Miles Dumas Flashed Bar Patrons, Beat Some Up, Cops Say

A Houston cop has been accused of flashing patrons of a Galveston bar and then getting in a tussle with some of them.

Miles Stedman Dumas, 24, has been charged with indecent exposure and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and been relieved of duty pending an investigation, the Galveston County Daily News reports.

Police say Dumas, who's been with HPD for a year, was in Tsunami, a bar on the Strand, sortly after midnight Wednesday.

Witnesses said he exposed himself to male and female patrons, and when some objected a fight began. One bar-goer was hit in the jaw with a pistol and Dumas stabbed another, Galveston police told the News.

Dumas's Facebook page has been taken down, but those who've seen it said it contained several pictures of him partying.
