OKLAHOMA CITY - An Oklahoma County sheriff's deputy was arrested for first-degree rape over the weekend.

Authorities say Eutt Sharp was arrested on Saturday after a woman reported she was raped by an Oklahoma County Sheriff's Deputy.

Sharp has since been fired from the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office.

"Immediately after learning of Sharp’s confession and subsequent arrest, I terminated his employment," said Sheriff John Whetsel. "We have zero tolerance for anyone who betrays the trust of our citizens. He wore a badge, and I am extremely upset and disappointed in his conduct.”

Sharp had been with the department since February 2014.

Sharp was also a school resource officer for an Edmond school.

However, authorities confirmed the rape allegations are not connected to the school in any way.

The Oklahoma City Police Department is expected to release more information later.
