The Moore officers are already on paid administrative leave for an internal investigation. Now Representative Shelton called on OSBI to investigate.

"To avoid having this situation turn into an even bigger controversy, I believe state officials should be put in charge," he said.

One of three local officials will have to formally request the OSBI's involvement.
