GREENFIELD — Sheriff’s Deputy Scott Roeger was arrested again Monday after new criminal charges were filed against the embattled officer.

Roeger, 33, of Greenfield, turned himself in at the Hamilton County Jail Monday after he learned he had been charged with a felony count of official misconduct, as well as one misdemeanor count of intimidation. He posted $7,500 bond and was released Tuesday.

Roeger is accused of threatening a woman he had been dating and misusing a police database in an effort to get the woman into legal trouble after they had a fight, according to court documents.

This marks the fourth criminal case filed against Roeger in less than three months. None of the cases is directly connected, but the filings all stem from the investigation following Roeger’s first arrest in McCordsville in October.

Roeger has been on paid suspension since he was arrested Oct. 6 following a domestic dispute with a McCordsville woman he had been dating.
