LOG LANE VILLAGE, Colo. — The chief of the Log Lane Police Department (LLPD) was arrested Saturday night on domestic violence charges, according to the Fort Morgan Police Department (FMPD).
Joshua Katz, 33, was arrested on suspicion of the following charges, according to FMPD:
- Second-degree assault
- Third-degree assault
- False imprisonment
- Domestic violence
FMPD said Katz was arrested in connection to an incident Saturday afternoon.
Katz was appointed as marshal of Log Lane Village in April 2020, the Fort Morgan Times reported. Since then, Katz has since been named the town's chief of police, according to the department's Facebook page.
Katz was being held without bail pending an arraignment, FMPD said Saturday night.
The case stemmed from an incident that occurred in Log Lane Village, but FMPD said it was handling the investigation with assistance from the Morgan County Sheriff's Office.
LLPD released the following message on Sunday night:
"The Log Lane Police Department would like to inform the citizens we serve, that we are aware of the ongoing investigation with Chief Katz and we are cooperating with the investigation and our partners at the Fort Morgan Police Department and Morgan County Sheriff’s Office. We are dedicated to serving those in our community and we are always here for you."
FMPD said it will be releasing more information on the investigation in the coming days.
Log Lane Village is a suburb of Fort Morgan.
