ALLEN COUNTY, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) – The investigation of Allen County’s highest law enforcement officer allegedly involved in a disturbance at the Three Rivers Festival earlier this year is now complete.
The incident in question happened July 16th at Headwaters Park during the Three Rivers Festival.
Fort Wayne Police said they were called to a disturbance involving Allen County Sheriff David Gladieux.
It wasn’t immediately clear if he was on duty at the time.
A representative for the Allen County prosecutor’s office confirmed an investigation but would not release the incident report or comment on it, citing the ongoing investigation.
However, multiple sources have told us the incident involved a locked area near temporary bathrooms where Gladieux allegedly pushed a teenage festival volunteer, who reportedly fell into something metal and sustained minor injuries.
Indiana State Police took over the investigation and the Allen County Prosecutor’s office requested a special prosecutor handle the case.
Special Prosecutor Rodney Cummings, of Madison County, expects to see the findings of the investigation as soon as Monday.
He along with the ISP detective will travel to Fort Wayne next week to tour Headwaters Park.
Cummings told Fort Wayne’s NBC after he will make a decision in the case once he’s had the case for a few days.
