A school resource officer (SRO) is behind bars after allegations emerged that he may have stalked a female student.
Sgt. Dorell Green, a four-year veteran of the Fountain Police Department and an Air Force reservist, has been charged with stalking and promotion of obscenity to a minor. Green is a supervising SRO with the Fountain-Fort Carson School District. The district says the victim attends Fountain-Fort Carson High School.
The police department says they were alerted of the allegations against Green on Wednesday. Fountain police asked the El Paso County Sheriff's Office to investigate. Green was arrested as a result of the investigation.
Green has been placed on paid administrative leave with all police credentials and commissions suspended. The police department says the internal affairs investigation is expected to be completed within 30 days.
Green went before a judge for the first time Thursday via video, where his bond was set at $25,000.
