Aurora officers disciplined for leaking body cam footage of Denver mayor’s son

The Denver Post: Two Aurora police officers have been disciplined for leaking a video clip of the Denver mayor’s son, who was stopped for speeding, then berated, cursed and threatened the motorcycle officer who pulled him over.

Officers Paul Timmons and Judy Gurley-Lutkin were ordered Aug. 6 to be suspended for 10 hours without pay for leaking body camera footage to Denver7 taken by Officer Paul McClendon.

On March 23, McClendon pulled over 22-year-old Jordan Hancock, son of Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, in the area of East 40th Avenue and Walden Street for speeding. Hancock was issued a ticket for driving 65 mph in a 40 mph zone.

“My dad’s the mayor, you (obscenity) Ha. Ha. … Guess what, I’m about to get you fired (obscenity),” Hancock said to McClendon, among other comments.

A few days after the incident, McClendon was reviewing the footage with Timmons, who recorded it on his cellphone. Timmons then shared the video on his phone with Gurley-Lutkin, according to a police department investigative document.
