Colorado police officer arrested on sex assault accusation
BROOMFIELD — A 40-year-old Colorado police officer has been accused of sexually assaulting a woman while he was on duty.
Westminster Police Chief Tim Carlson says Curtis Arganbright was arrested Monday on warrants for sex assault using force, false imprisonment and sexual assault by a person in a position of authority following an extensive investigation. Formal charges are pending, and Arganbright has been suspended without pay.
Arganbright was being held at the Broomfield Detention Center on $20,000 bond. It wasn’t immediately clear whether he had an attorney.
He has been an officer in Westminster for nearly four years.
Carlson says the case has had a “devastating impact” on the Westminster Police Department.
