DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. — Arrest reports reveal that a Denver police officer who has been with the agency for nearly 18 years is now on the other side of the law and facing criminal allegations.
Jeremy Olive, 50, was arrested Dec. 31 on misdemeanor domestic violence charges. Court records obtained by 9NEWS reveal deputies with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office responded to a home in Castle Pines around 10 p.m. New Year’s Eve for a domestic violence call.
“During the argument Jeremy struck [REDACTED] in the chest with the palm of his hand. This caused visible redness…,” a deputy noted in the police report.
“There were signs of intoxication by both parties,” the arresting officer added in the report.
The report also says Olive admitted to pushing the woman "as she walked up to him."
Records indicate Olive was booked into jail and released the next day under a $3,000 bond.
Denver Police said Olive was suspended with pay, per standard protocol for misdemeanor arrests.
Olive joined DPD in 2005 and had been in a "non-patrol assignment" prior to arrest, according to the department.
Online records from Colorado's POST board, which certifies every peace officer in the state, reveal Olive's certification has been flagged for being under investigation.
