[Excerpts] A former Peoria police officer faces up to seven years in prison for allegedly trespassing at his estranged wife's house and taking a laptop computer from a man who was there. Clayton Glasper, 45, who is listed as homeless, appeared in Peoria County Circuit Court on Monday, charged with burglary and criminal trespass to a residence, both felonies... Court records indicate he allegedly broke out a screen window and struggled with his wife. He allegedly closed a window on her hand, causing minor injuries. He fled but later returned to the house, where he was arrested. Police, in checking the house, found the other man's car had been burglarized. Missing was a laptop computer, which was allegedly found in Glasper's car. Glasper, who had served 20 years on Peoria's police force, lost his job in April after accusations of improperly touching women. City Hall has never given a specific reason why the officer was fired. In 2006, the city settled a federal lawsuit for $21,000 in which Glasper also was accused of improperly touching a woman. [Full article here]

[Excerpts] Police and the city of Peoria on Wednesday did not disclose reasons for the firing of a 20-year veteran of the police force a day earlier. It was unclear if multiple allegations he fondled women caused the termination of Clayton Glasper, 44, on Tuesday... On Wednesday, the Journal Star also learned details of a 2006 lawsuit in U.S. District Court in which Glasper was accused of improperly touching a woman. According to City Attorney Randy Ray, that suit was officially resolved in September 2006, after the City Council on Aug. 22 of that year agreed to pay $21,000 to settle, with Glasper agreeing to reimburse the city $3,000... In the 2006 case, a Peoria woman alleged Glasper touched her body "in a sexually aggressive manner, without her permission" on June 14, 2004, while on duty... The woman said Glasper followed her to a parking garage, made comments about her body, asked questions about her underwear and eventually attempted to lift her skirt... The woman said she continually tried to fend him off, but he got onto an elevator with her and followed her to her car, repeatedly touching her body and eventually pinning her against her car. After asking if she wanted to "get together sometime," she said Glasper finally removed himself from the path of her car door and she drove away. The complaint filed by the woman's attorney included a section titled "Glasper's Previous Conduct," in which the city is accused of continuing to employ Glasper after knowledge of a previous incident in which "Glasper was accused of inappropriate sexual behavior by a female in Peoria County prior to the Attack." The complaint indicates the city took disciplinary action against Glasper but "continued to uniform and arm Glasper." The woman's attorney indicated in court papers that Glasper was suspended without pay for 30 days but faced no further punishment after the incident involving his client in the parking garage. In a 2008 incident at Elliott's, a cabaret at 7807 N. University St., Glasper also was accused of fondling a woman... [Full article here]
