One Officer Fired For Misconduct. - One Suspended

One Denver police officer has been fired and another suspended amid allegations of misconduct, a police spokesman and public safety manager both said Friday night.

Denver Police Officer Randall Hurst was fired and Officer Michael Jimenez has been suspended, said police spokesman John White.

The circumstances could not be confirmed, White said, referring queries to Mary Dulacki, manager of records for the Denver Department of Safety.

"I don't know anything about the details and what the allegations are at this point," Dulacki said.

The time of the alleged misconduct, and when Hurst was fired, is unclear, White and Dulacki said. An investigation into the conduct by Jimenez continues, they said.

A local television station reported that both officers were accused of on-duty sex in uniform. Citing anonymous "police contacts," CBS4 reported on its website that Hurst was accused of having sex with a suspected prostitute in the bathroom of an East Colfax Taco Bell.....
