KUSA - Sources tell 9NEWS two Denver police officers are being investigated by Aurora police for a fight that allegedly happened at an officer's home during a swingers party.

The alleged incident took place May 19 at officer Steven Sloan's home. 9NEWS has learned he and his wife were hosting a get together involving another couple. Sources tell 9NEWS the two officers have a history of swinging, a practice where couples share partners.

UPDATE: Assault, child abuse charges filed in DPD cop brawl

9NEWS has learned the other officer present at the home with his wife was officer Jeremy Ownbey.

Sources tell 9NEWS an argument started over who would participate in the sexual activity. The women allegedly started fighting, the officers got involved to stop it, but got into an altercation themselves. Aurora police say Sloan pulled his gun during the incident.

Formal charges have not been filed.

The Aurora Police Department also acknowledges four officers who responded to the incident are now the subject of an internal affairs investigation for not conducting a DUI investigation on Jeremy Ownbey.

"We should have investigated further. We made a poor decision," APD spokesperson Frank Fania said about the investigation.
