Maryland State Police say a trooper who resigned in April after being disciplined for a personnel issue has been arrested for sexually assaulting a woman.

State police say 42-year-old Marlon Iglesias of Silver Spring is charged with sexual offenses. Police say that in July of 2008, the former trooper squeezed a woman's thigh after he arrested her in the course of a traffic stop on I-270. The alleged victim told police Iglesias sexually assaulted, fondled and kissed her while she was handcuffed.

Maryland State Police hired Iglesias in 1994 to patrol roads out of the Rockville barracks. In January, his police powers were suspended because of a personnel issue. He has been released on bond.
