SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A San Antonio police officer has been fired on the same day a grand jury indicted him for allegedly raping a woman in his patrol car.

The indictment Tuesday against 40-year-old Jackie Len Neal includes a charge of aggravated sexual assault.

Neal was arrested Nov. 23 on a sexual assault charge the day after a 19-year-old woman said she was raped during a traffic stop. Neal was freed on bond following that charge. Online jail records at the time didn't list an attorney for Neal, who had been on paid administrative leave.

Police Chief William McManus has said there's no such thing as consensual sex while on duty.

Neal also faces a federal civil rights lawsuit.
