Full Story:A police corporal in Denver has been suspended for making a crude comment about a woman’s breasts – and trying to set up a date with her daughter, city documents show.
Cpl. Adolph Chavez, a veteran officer of 24 years, made “inappropriate remarks” to a woman who was arrested in June and then tried to start a romantic relationship with her adult daughter, whom he called a “babe” while setting up a time for the woman to retrieve her mother’s forgotten cellphone, the Denver Post reports.
“An officer of Corporal Chavez’s experience and rank should be familiar with the concepts of professionalism and conflicts of interest,” a Denver Department of Public Safety official wrote in a letter obtained by the newspaper through a records request.
Chavez had been training a police recruit when they picked up a woman arrested by other officers and transported her to a police station. Along the way, the woman asked Chavez to call her daughter to tell her what transpired, the newspaper reports.
The corporal then asked the woman while inside a police station processing room if she had anything in her bra.
“Nope, nothing that isn’t supposed to be in there,” the woman replied, according to the letter.
“But boobs?” Chavez said.
“Yeah,” the woman giggled.
The corporal later realized that the woman forgot her cellphone in the back of his police cruiser, so he called her daughter to set up a time for her to pick it up. But Chavez forgot to bring the device to the station’s front desk and texted the woman’s daughter to say he was sorry, the newspaper reports.
