According to news reports, A retired Philadelphia cop whose heroism earned him a salute from President Obama and a seat next to the First Lady was arrested Saturday on rape charges, authorities said.

Richard DeCoatsworth, 27, is accused of forcing two women to perform oral sex on him at gunpoint after making them consume drugs.

DeCoatsworth had met one of the women two weeks ago and forced her into prostitution at an area hotel, a source told NBC Philadelphia.

DeCoatsworth showed up at the woman’s home sometime late Thursday or early Friday and strong-armed the two victims.

The women, both in their 20s, called police after DeCoatsworth left .

The disgraced cop was charged with rape, sexual assault and terroristic  threats, NBC Philadelphia reported.
