An Oklahoma Highway Patrol Captain is accused of attempting to blackmail the state's Department of Public Safety Commissioner.

Troy German was trying to gain a promotion or appointment to a state office. Court documents show he threatened to release evidence of OHP misconduct if Rusty Rhoades rejected his proposals.

German denies the allegation and entered a plea of not guilty. 

He was released on bond and is expected to have his preliminary hearing in March.
