A Broward Sheriff's Office deputy was arrested Thursday on accusations that he sexually assaulted a teenager, BSO confirmed on Friday.

Deputy Leon Andrae Campbell, 37, was arrested by Lauderhill police on charges of sexual assault on a victim who is 16 or 17, and promoting the sexual activity of a victim less than 16.

Campbell was released from jail Friday afternoon after posting $15,000 bail. He refused to speak with Local 10 News reporter Jeff Weinsier as he left the jail.  

BSO officials said Campbell, who works in the Pompano Beach area, has been suspended without pay pending the outcome of the investigation.
