Two Denver police officers are being investigated after Aurora police responded last month to a fight between the officers and their wives that involved alcohol, a gun and allegations of swinging.

The officers, Steven Sloan and Jeremy Ownbey, have been placed on desk duty while the investigation continues, Detective Mary McIver , a Denver police spokeswoman, said Wednesday. Both have been at the department since 2006.

Aurora police were called to Sloan's house at 11:30 p.m. on May 19, said Officer Frank Fania , a spokesman for the Aurora Police Department.

Sloan and his wife, Stephanie Sloan , and Ownbey and his wife, Jamie Ownbey, had been drinking and had gotten into an argument, Fania said.
