JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – A female deputy with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office has been detained and booked through the jail, but authorities contend she was not actually arrested.

Sources told CBS4 authorities are investigating her relationship and contact with a male inmate, which triggered Saturday night’s events.

After being contacted by CBS4, Jefferson County officials wrote in an email, “We have not made an arrest; however, we did book-thru a deputy last night for investigative purposes. We will release the deputy’s name if an arrest is made.”
