Assault Case Against Dillon Officer Dismissed

BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. (AP) — A judge dismissed the case against a Dillon police officer accused of hitting a teenage suspect while he was handcuffed and sitting in the back seat of a patrol car.

The judge tossed the case Thursday, saying prosecutors did not provide defense attorneys a full report from a hospital security guard. Eagle County District Attorney Mark Hurlbert says the security guard did not give his office the full report and then gave defense attorneys a report with an additional paragraph without prosecutors’ knowledge.

Hurlbert says his office will appeal the case.

The Summit Daily News reports that prosecutors accuse Dillon police officer Brian Brady of striking a 16-year-old boy suspected of multiple armed robberies and arson in December. Brady pleaded not guilty in the case.
