PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - A Yavapai County sheriff's sergeant has been placed on paid administrative leave in connection with a biker brawl at a Prescott bar.

Sheriff's spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn said Monday that Bill Suttle will be on leave indefinitely.

Suttle is a 20-year veteran of the sheriff's office who commands a drug trafficking task force.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety is investigating the December fight that involved members of a law enforcement motorcycle club.

Suttle had been the club's vice president. He told authorities that 1 of the bikers punched Justin Stafford after Stafford grabbed another biker's vest and started talking trash.

Stafford left the bar with a bloodied and bruised nose.

D'Evelyn says Coconino County is conducting an administrative review of Suttle's involvement.
