 Minneapolis police officer David Campbell, 59, spent the weekend in jail after his arrest outside a hotel in suburban Bloomington. 

Campbell is being held in Hennepin County Jail on suspicion of third-degree criminal sexual conduct, the Star Tribune reports. Campbell has been placed on administrative leave from his policing job while the Minneapolis department awaits more information on his case.

Bloomington police have not made public any details about Campbell's alleged victim -- "the investiation is ongoing and [Campbell] has not been formally charged," police chief Mike Hartley told the newspaper -- and said those facts would be revealed in charging documents.

The third-degree criminal sexual assault statute encompasses a number of different sex offenses, including sexual contact with a minor, sex involving "force or coercion," or sex with a "mentally impaired" victim, among other acts. The crime carries a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison and/or a $30,000 fine.

Campbell was picked up outside the La Quinta Inn around 6:00 p.m. Friday evening. 

Campbell has accumulated numerous parking and driving offenses, according to Minnesota court records, but has no other known criminal history in this state.
