OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma City police officer was charged Friday with 16 counts including first-degree rape and sexual battery after being accused of assaulting at least eight women while on patrol.
Daniel Holtzclaw, 27, also faces charges of forcible oral sodomy and indecent exposure. Holtzclaw, a former standout football player in high school and college, was arrested Aug. 21. He remained in custody on a $5 million cash bond Friday, according to jail records.
He is accused of stopping women, who were all black and between the ages of 34 and 58, while on duty in Oklahoma City. Prosecutors allege that he raped two women and either fondled others or forced them to expose themselves, and police said there may be more victims.

Orange Sea Pen (Ptilosarcus gurneyi)
…a species of sea pen is native to the waters around British Columbia to Central California. Like other cnidarians orange sea pens are colonial and consist of multiple animals known as zooids. Although they are considered sessile, they can move very slowly and can bury themselves if disturbed. They accomplish this by releasing water from their canal system. Orange sea pens luminescence as well, the light is produced from mucous that is released when the colony is touched. Like all cnidarians, orange sea pens feed on passing plankton which are dispatched by their stinging cells.
