Off-Duty Frisco Officer Accused In Fighting Incident
FRISCO, Colo. (CBS4) – The Summit County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a fight involving an off-duty Frisco police officer that happened last Friday.
The sheriff’s office said deputies responded to a report of a fight in the 1500 block of Lone Pine Circle near the 7000 building around 11 p.m.
“The caller reported to Summit County Dispatch that an officer identifying himself as Daniel Sullivan contacted their unit regarding a noise complaint,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement. “About 10 minutes later, Sullivan returned to the unit and again told the residents they were being too loud.

Sullivan has been placed on administrative leave.
