LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT/KARK) -

A Little Rock police officer's behavior brings questions after controversial incidents led to his suspension.

According to KARK, a police report shows Officer Jason Butler picked up a 16-year-old girl from a bus stop in April because it was raining.

He took the teen to his home to sleep before taking her back to her parent's house the next day.

Another incident happened after Butler responded to a domestic disturbance call and escorted the man involved in the disturbance somewhere else.

Officer Butler then returned to the residence and the woman filed a complain a few days later.

Captain Mike Davis recommended a 160 unpaid suspension after the incident saying "I find this behavior to be indicative of a predatory nature that cannot be tolerated."
