Abbe Dorn, bodybuilding cop once on American Gladiators, resigns amid steroid probe

Update: Last month, we reported that Abbe Dorn, a Denver police officer whose moonlighting gigs included modeling, bodybuilding and an appearance on the reality show American Gladiators, was at the center of an internal investigation into alleged steroid use. In addition, Dorn was named in a lawsuit filed by a man who alleged that Denver Police officers had beaten him and then covered up the incident -- the second such complaint in which she'd featured.

The latest? Dorn has resigned from the DPD.
