Update: Minneapolis cop arrested on suspicion of sex crime is now on administrative leave

MPD said Sunday evening he's now on administrative leave.

A Minneapolis police officer is in jail this weekend after being arrested on suspicion of criminal sexual conduct.

According to a news release from the Bloomington Police Department, 59-year-old David Edward Campbell was arrested around 6 p.m. on Friday as he was leaving a Bloomington hotel. 

Campbell is in custody at Hennepin County jail. He's being held for probable cause of criminal sexual conduct, the department says.

Minneapolis police Sunday evening confirmed in an email release that Campbell is a Minneapolis Police Department employee.

He is on administrative leave pending additional information from the Bloomington Police Department, MPD said.

Bloomington police said Campbell has no permanent address. Authorities haven't released much more than that yet.

Campbell has not been charged with a crime as of Sunday evening.

Reports from FOX 9, the Star Tribune, and WCCO had previously identified Campbell as a Minneapolis police officer. 

There is a David Edward Campbell listed as a police officer in this city employee salary finder from the Pioneer Press, but the most recent year is 2012. A David Campbell also shows up on a search of MPD's online police conduct complaints database, with three closed cases that resulted in no discipline and one open case.
