Deputy in LV constable's office arrested on seduction charge


A Las Vegas constable's deputy and former Metropolitan Police Department officer was arrested Thursday on charges of statutory sexual seduction.

Clinton James Wood, 25, is facing two felony counts, according to Las Vegas police. Department spokesman Bill Cassell said he couldn't elaborate on why Wood was arrested because the charges involved a juvenile victim.

Las Vegas Constable Bobby Gronauer said Wood has been suspended without pay pending the outcome of the criminal charges and an internal investigation. He is not currently in custody.

Wood has been with the office for 18 months, where he served as a warrant deputy serving justice court traffic warrants, Gronauer said.

Cassell said Wood was hired by the department in 2005 and left in early 2009.
