A Bardstown Police Department officer is under investigation by Kentucky State Police.
KSP Drug Enforcement Special Investigations Sgt. Corey Knochel confirmed Officer Tony Satterly is under investigation, but did not release any details surrounding the case. Officials did say the investigation has no connection to the murder of Bardstown Police Department Officer Jason Ellis.
Satterly is a 10-year veteran of the department and earned officer of the year honors in 2009.
He was placed on administrative leave.
The Bardstown Police Department posted an informal statement on its Facebook page.
Yes, there is an investigation on one of our officers that has NOTHING do to with any cases in Nelson County nor the Ellis case. No one is in custody, not the officer, not any officer, not any command staff...No, the FBI is not involved. This investigation is an internal investigation that will be handled as such
