Video shows Denver mayor’s son threatening police officer
The 22-year-old Jordan Hancock, son of Denver mayor, is seen on newly released body camera footage talking to a police officer in March 2018 traffic stop for speeding.
Two Colorado police were suspended Wednesday for their involvement in the leaking body camera images from the Denver mayor’s son to threaten a public official as part of an expletive laden outburst.
Aurora police officers Paul Timmons and Judy Gurley-Lutkin receive one day suspension after the department found they were involved in the premature leak of the video of the Jordan Hancock, the son of Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, FOX31 reported.
Jordan Hancock, 22, was pulled over March 23 by an Aurora police officer for 65 km / h in a 50 km / h zone, the site reported. Despite the reportedly found to be driving without a driver’s license, Hancock was belligerent in the direction of Aurora police officer Paul McClendon, and began to rebuke him.
Hancock told McClendon, “Because that’s my motherf—ing father,” and when the officer asked why the title of the car was in the name of Denver’s mayor.

He was even more excited when McClendon said he needed to take a picture of the 22-year-old, because he drove without a license. The agent had already processed a speeding ticket.
“You ain’t taking my picture,” Jordan said. “B – – – – my father is the mayor, you f-ing f—–,” he told the officer.
The police found no misconduct by McClendon. Internal affairs, however, found McClendon showed the body images from the camera to Timmons, who, together with his mobile phone and played the Gurley-Lutkin. The officer then showed it to her husband.
Hancock has personally apologized to McClendon and paid the $275 fine for the speeding ticket, FOX31 reported.
