CLEVELAND — An Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper is accused of selling lucrative cars while on duty.

The complaint alleges that the trooper sold a Lamborghini to a man while at the Ohio Statehouse and allowed him to park the car in a restricted parking area.

The trooper is also accused of selling a Porsche to a woman who works for the state as the assistant residence manager at the governor's residence.

According to the complaint, he would speak to prospective customers while on duty for OSHP.

The trooper told investigators that he applied for a secondary employment application, but they couldn't find one on file.

The department will now have to determine whether administrative action is warranted.
