Boulder Police Chief Defends Officers Involved In CU Football Player Traffic Stop

BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4)– The Chief of Police in Boulder is defending his officers’ actions in a traffic stop involving eight University of Colorado football players.

A police dashboard camera shows the officers’ response to a report of someone waving a gun inside a car last Saturday.

Officers stopped two cars and surrounded one of them with guns pointed at the vehicle.

Boulder Police Chief Mark Beckner said in a statement, “The officers acted appropriately and used appropriate action.”

Police discovered the gun was only a toy. The players are not facing any charges in connection with the incident.

People in both cars knew each other. Two of the CU players involved were suspended for two games. One player has left the program.
