Columbus vice detective relieved of assignment

Local News

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — A Columbus Division of Police vice officer who was involved in the arrest of Stormy Daniels has been relieved of his assignment, according to Columbus police.

CPD spokesperson Sergeant Chantay Boxill told NBC4 Detective Steve Rosser has his badge and gun taken away Wednesday. He has been reassigned to desk duty.

Sgt. Boxill said the reassignment was based on information received as a result of the ongoing FBI investigation into the division’s vice unit. Boxill did not elaborate further on the reasons for Rosser’s reassignment.

Rosser was one of four officers involved in the arrest of Stormy Daniels at Siren’s Gentlemen’s Club in July.

In September, the FBI’s Public Corruption Task Force took over the division’s investigation into its vice unit.
