Denver DA Charges Denver Police Officer with Second-Degree Assault

Denver – Denver DA Beth McCann announced today that a criminal case was filed in Denver District Court against Denver Police Officer Adam Glasby (39). Glasby is charged with one felony count of second-degree assault with intent to cause bodily injury causing serious bodily injury (F4) following an alleged altercation on June 12, 2023.

On the night of June 12, 2023, Glasby and another DPD Officer were working at an off-duty assignment at Hayter’s & Co. bar at 1920 Blake St. in Denver.  The officers witnessed a group of males fighting outside the bar.  In an effort to break up the fight, Glasby pulled one of the men away from the other and, in doing so, Glasby body slammed the victim to the pavement leaving him unconscious. Glasby stayed with the victim and attempted to render aid. When the victim woke up, he was walked away by his friends.

This case is number 2023CR4284.
