BRIGHTON, Colo. (CBS4) – The Brighton Police Department denies giving favorable treatment to a firefighter accused of domestic violence.

Lt. Randy Cleveland is accused of pushing his pregnant wife down the stairs, hitting her with a hammer and forcing her to have sex.

In divorce papers, Cleveland’s wife claims when officers arrived to investigate they “high-fived” the fire lieutenant.

In the arrest affidavit some firefighters say they felt Cleveland received special treatment because the officers knew him.

  1. Common Sense says:

    If Cleveland is in Jail on Felony Assault Charges then how did the police give him favorable treatment? An abuser is an abuser in my book and if this is true then shame on Cleveland for putting officers he ”knows” in this position. Firefighters are supposed to be good upstanding moral people and this gives them and police a bad name. Shame on Cleveland.
