FRANKFORT, Ind. (WLFI) – Both a sergeant and an officer from the Frankfort Police Department are under investigation by the Indiana State Police.

Frankfort Ofc. Allan Brown resigned on Monday after being under investigation for his actions during an off-duty accident. He was using his personal vehicle at the time.

WLFI-TV reported last week that Sgt. Kevin O’Brien is under investigation for battery on a woman.

Frankfort Police Chief Troy Bacon said he’s disappointed but cannot make any other comments about the investigation until charges are filed.

The Clinton County prosecutor said it’s customary to send the investigation to a special prosecutor outside the county in order to stay unbiased.

Brown’s case will be sent to the Carroll County prosecutor, and it’s also likely that’s where O’Brien’s case will go. O’Brien is still on paid administrative leave.

Bacon said they’re waiting to see if charges are filed before deciding his fate with the department.
