A Berthoud police officer who was arrested for abusing his teenage daughter has been fired. Jeremy Yachik admitted that he punched, choked and kicked his 15-year-old daughter. His ex fiance caught the abuse on tape.

Yachik was arrested and released on bond.  He is facing four charges of child abuse and one of false imprisonment. Yachik’s daughter told interviewers at the Child Advocacy Center that she had been choked; force-fed hot sauce; bound with handcuffs and plastic zip ties; locked in rooms; punched and kicked; beaten with ropes; and prevented from eating. She said the abuse occurred almost daily for several years.

Meanwhile, Berthoud Police Chief Glenn Johnson remains on paid administrative leave for an alleged cover-up. Larimer County Sheriff’s Sgt. John Feyen is serving as interim police chief during a criminal investigation.
