The Denver Post - - NEWS - By Kieran Ni­chol­son

An Edge­wa­ter po­lice of­fi­cer who suf­fered a heart at­tack last month while ar­rest­ing a com­bat­ive DUI sus­pect has been re­leased from a hos­pi­tal.

Cpl. Michael Nes­bitt is re­cov­er­ing at home af­ter his re­lease from Lutheran Med­i­cal Cen­ter in Wheat Ridge, ac­cord­ing to Edge­wa­ter po­lice.

The in­ci­dent hap­pened at about 2 a.m. June 23 when of­fi­cers at­tempted to stop the driver of a mo­tor­ized scooter for sus­pected DUI. The driver of the scooter, iden­ti­fied as Con­nor Michael Dougherty, 26, wrecked the ve­hi­cle in the park­ing lot of Jef­fer­son High School, 2305 Pierce St., po­lice said.

Do­na­tions to aid Nes­bitt can be made to the “Cor­po­ral Michael Nes­bitt Fam­ily Re­lief Fund” at any US Bank branch.
