PRESCOTT, AZ - A Yavapai County sheriff's deputy whose actions were investigated following a brawl involving a motorcycle club at a Prescott bar has been fired.
The sheriff's office announced Friday that a personnel review board recommended that Deputy Mark Boan be terminated. That recommendation was upheld during a hearing in front of the county's human resources department.
Boan has indicated that he plans to appeal.
The board also recommended termination for sheriff's Capt. Marc Schmidt and Sgt. Bill Suttle. However, the two have already resigned.
An investigative report released last month alleged that members of a law enforcement motorcycle club assaulted patrons at the Prescott bar last December, and high-ranking officers tried to cover up the bikers' involvement.
The brawl along Whiskey Row sent a man to the hospital with a bloodied and swollen nose and left another with minor injuries.
