Fort Collins (AP) - Colorado State University records show that the school's former police chief was put on leave after one of his subordinates filed a sexual-harassment complaint against him.
The Fort Collins Coloradoan reports that documents it obtained from CSU in response to an open records request show that an employee filed a complaint against Dexter Yarbrough on Dec. 10.
Interim CSU president Tony Frank put Yarbrough on leave nine days later, and appointed a panel to investigate the allegations. CSU officials received a second sexual harassment complaint in
January. Yarbrough resigned March 6, after investigators concluded their work and presented frank with their report. CSU has declined to discuss the investigation.
Yarbrough has not responded to the newspaper's request for comment, and a listed phone number for him could not be found.
