MCSO detention officer bonds out of jail

A Maricopa County jail detention officer arrested for allegedly assaulting inmates has posted a $36,000 secured appearance bond.

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office says 31-year-old Kevin Gerster was questioned by detectives Monday and then booked into jail in connection with three separate and unrelated felony cases.

He was placed on administrative leave.

MCSO officials say Gerster is accused of assaulting two inmates and also charged with computer tampering and unauthorized access to criminal history.

Gerster has been a detention officer since March 2008. Authorities say surveillance video shows Gerster involved with an altercation with one jail inmate on June 5 and another on Nov. 11.
