Three Park County deputies have been suspended while accusations that they shot a keg at an under age party are being investigated.
Last weekend, the officers found a group of teens partying in a remote area of the Pike National Forest. Several of the teens were ticketed for underage drinking.
But according to some of the highschoolers, and their parents, two of the deputies fired a total of three shots at a chain that was holding a keg of beer to a tree.
Undersheriff Monte Gore says he has asked the Teller County Sheriff’s Office to investigate the incident, to avoid conflict of interests.
