GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - A former Grand Junction Police Officer who was arrested in August for harassing a woman pleaded not guilty in court Wednesday morning and will go to trial.

Courtney Crooks was in court to enter a plea. He says he’s not guilty of a misdemeanor charge of harassment and is scheduled to go to trial in February.

Crooks was arrested Aug. 28 by the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office on allegations that he grabbed a woman by the back of the neck.

At that time the Police Department also launched two of its own investigations into Crooks but have since dropped them.

Crooks is out on bond.
