The Gwinnett County Police Department said a Georgia State University police officer has been arrested after a woman reported raped.

The woman said she met Terry Payne, 59, of Loganville, months ago and had met him for dinner on Aug. 5 at a restaurant near the Mall of Georgia.

The victim told police that she remembers "having an alcoholic beverage and then nothing else until she woke up in an unfamiliar location and the suspect was raping her."
