Among the allegations in the criminal complaint is the accusation that Campbell exposed himself to the victim in a Roseville hotel room.

The victim also said Campbell touched her inappropriately in his squad cars during multiple ride-alongs on which she accompanied him. And that Campbell allegedly told the victim during one such ride-along that he would shoot her in the head if she got him it trouble.
