Arresting officer accused U.S. senator of lying after men's room arrest

The officer who arrested a senior U.S. Republican senator in a police undercover operation at an airport men's room accused the lawmaker of lying to him during an interrogation afterward, according to an audio tape of the arrest.
On the tape, released Thursday by the Minneapolis Airport Police, Sen. Larry Craig ,in turn, accuses the officer of soliciting him for sex.
"I'm not gay. I don't do these kinds of things," Craig told Sgt. Dave Karsnia minutes after the two men met in a men's room at the airport on June 11.
"You shouldn't be out to entrap people," Craig told the officer. "I don't want you to take me to jail."
Karsnia replied that Craig wouldn't be going to jail as long as he co-operates.
At one point during the interrogation, the officer told Craig: "You're not being truthful with me. I'm kind of disappointed in you, senator."
