DENVER (AP) Three more police officers involved in the rough arrest of a 73-year-old Colorado woman with dementia have been placed on leave, an official said Wednesday.

Officer Daria Jalali, Officer Tyler Blackett and Sgt. Phil Metzler were placed on administrative leave Friday in connection with the arrest of Karen Garner in Loveland, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) north of Denver, last year, police spokesman Tom Hacker said.

After Garner filed a federal lawsuit this month and her lawyer released body camera footage of her arrest, the department announced it was putting the arresting officer, Austin Hopp, on administrative leave and said that Jalali and Metzler, shown on Hopp's body camera footage, were being placed on desk duty.

Hacker said he did not know specifically what led to the changes in the status of Jalali, Blackett and Metzler but noted that Blackett helped transport Garner to the police station.
