Charges Could Be Filed Against West Yellowstone Chief

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN - The Department of Criminal Investigations recommended that charges be filed against the West Yellowstone Police Chief, although details on those possible charges are still unknown as this time.

The Department of Criminal Investigations began looking into Chief Gordon Berger, after criminal allegations were reported against him.

Gallatin County Attorney Marty Lambert said the department requested the county attorney's office proceed with prosecution on Thursday.

West Yellowstone town officials said they are aware of the request, but haven't been contacted about any charges or what those possible charges could be.

Lambert said he can't say what those possible charges could be and he has no timeline when, or if, charges will be filed.
