COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- A 24-year-old former deputy with the El Paso County Sheriff's Office lost his job and is facing criminal charges after an alleged assault on an inmate in May.

According to EPCSO, Christopher Rogers was fired on Monday after being on administrative leave since May 18.

The sheriff's office says it all stems from "on-duty conduct between Rogers and an inmate on May 16, 2020." Rogers was assigned to the floor security division in the detention bureau and had been with the sheriff's office since 2016.

Rogers was served a summons on Friday for third-degree assault and first-degree official misconduct; both of the charges are misdemeanors. A mugshot wasn't taken because Rogers wasn't booked into custody.

We're trying to find out details about the allegations, but court records weren't updated as of Monday.

  1. Of course he wasn’t booked ….HE’S A COP!!!!! Now if it had been one of us we would be posting bail….just another example of how cops are treated above the law.

    1. If the inmate starts the fight and the officer uses “out of protocol” measures then he can be fired for misconduct. Don’t think that the inmate wasn’t taunting or started the incident.
      The false narrative that all cops are bad and/or all cops are out to just hurt people whenever they can needs to stop. That is pure ignorance!!
