Bad Cop Loses Job As Denver Officer After Getting Wild At Party
What could have been a life of service and honor as a Colorado police officer is now the exact opposite for one man that made some costly mistakes.
According to a press release from the Denver Police Department, an officer with the force, Daniel Cabellero, 27, was fired after being arrested in Aurora.
Who Is Daniel Cabellero?
Daniel Cabellero joined the Denver Police Department in 2021 and was assigned to the Denver Police Department Patrol Division. The young man was still on probationary status following his hiring but never completed his trial period because he was terminated Tuesday, October 18, 2022, following a recent arrest in Aurora.
Daniel Cabellero's Arrest in Aurora
According to the arrest affidavit obtained by Sentinel, Cabellero had attended a party with 4 others, one of which was his girlfriend.
Cabellero's girlfriend requested that the group leave the party after noticing that he had become highly intoxicated. On the drive back from the party, one of the members of Cabellero's group reported to Aurora police that she witnessed Cabellero pull his girlfriend's hair while she was driving, causing her discomfort.
The group returned to a residence on South Waco Way in Aurora and allegedly got into a dispute. Cabellero is alleged to have pulled a Glock 26 firearm out and pressed it into the abdomen of one of the guys in the group. One of the members of the group called the Aurora Police Department and Cabellero was arrested.
Cabellero is now facing charges of menacing, harassment, domestic violence, and prohibited use of weapons.
