In July, an inmate at the jail claimed that a deputy had used excessive force against him while he was being processed.

An initial investigation was conducted and the deputy in question was put on paid leave. The case has since been turned over to the Larimer County Investigations Division.

The case remains under investigation by the Larimer County Sheriff's Office along with the Larimer County District Attorney's Office.

The name of the deputy is being withheld and the further details of the case will be released once the DA's Office concludes a final review of the case.
