PEORIA, Ill. -- A Peoria police officer, acquitted of rape charges just last week, is under arrest, again.

John McCavitt is being held in the Peoria County Jail on felony charges of unlawful videotaping.

Police said the charge resulted from at least one other incident, not the incident he was most recently acquitted of.

McCavitt admitted during his trial last week to video recording what he called a consensual sexual encounter.

McCavitt is still on administrative leave pending the conclusion of this investigation and the subsequent investigation.
