Former Sheriff Put in Jail Named After Him

lawman Patrick Sullivan, a former "Sheriff of the Year," found
himself in jail named after him when cops arrested him for offering meth
for sex:

Colorado lawman Patrick Sullivan, 68 — handcuffed, dressed
in an orange jail uniform and walking with a cane — watched Wednesday
as a judge raised his bail amount to a half-million dollars and sent
him to the Patrick J. Sullivan Jr. Detention Facility.

The current sheriff, Grayson Robinson, who worked as undersheriff
for Sullivan from 1997 until he took over the job in 2002, said the
department was shocked and saddened at his arrest. [...]

Sullivan’s arrest has many in suburban Denver’s Arapahoe County
where he held sway for nearly two decades wondering what happened to
the tough-as-nails lawman they once knew — a law officer known
for his heroism in saving two deputies and for his concern about teenage
drug use.
