Fired Memphis officer charged with rape

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) – Prosecutors say a former Memphis police officer who was fired last year for intimidating a motorist has been indicted on unrelated rape charges.

The Shelby County district attorney’s office says 27-year-old Darrell Malone is charged with raping a 20-year-old woman he met at a Memphis mall.

Malone is accused of raping the woman at his apartment in the Cordova suburb.

Online court records do not show if Malone has a lawyer. He is free on $50,000 bond.

Malone was fired in February after a motorist said Malone flashed his gun at him after the two exchanged words in traffic.
