A former Washington, DC police officer who ran the DC Police Department’s LGBT liaison unit was arrested in Florida over the weekend for allegedly engaging in sexual activity with a minor.

Brett Parson, 53, was arrested Saturday in Boca Raton on a warrant from the Coconut Creek Police Department, an official told Fox News.

Parson is charged with two counts of unlawful sexual activity with a minor, the official said.

Online court records show Parson is being held without bail in Palm Beach County’s main jail. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had retained an attorney who could speak on his behalf.

Parson served as an officer for the District of Columbia’s Metropolitan Police Department for nearly three decades. He ran the department’s LGBT liaison office for many years.

He retired as a full-time MPD officer in February 2020. That year, he told the Washington Blade, “I will remain with MPD as a part-time Reserve Officer, serving at Reserve Corp’s discretion in whatever role I can best support in the agency I love.”

The MPD told Fox News it had released Parson from its reserve corps when it learned of his arrest early Sunday morning.
