Ex-Sheriff Thrown in Jail Named After Him Colorado man charged with offering meth for sex 38 comments Comments File photo. (AP) (User Submitted) – Former Colorado Sheriff Patrick Sullivan may not be the only person who has a jail named after him, but he may be the only person to get thrown into a jail named after him. The 68-year-old is suspected of offering meth to a male in exchange for sex, reports AP. He was arrested after a sting at his home, and a judge just doubled his bail to $500,000, according to the Denver Post. Sullivan was sheriff of Arapahoe County from 1984 until he retired in 2002, and he was named Sheriff of the Year by the National Sheriff's Association in 2001. Before his arrest, he was best known for being a bit of an action hero: In 1989, Sullivan crashed his truck through a fence to rescue two deputies being held hostage by a gun-toting man, notes the New York Times.
