SALT LAKE CITY – A police union has filed a complaint with the Utah State Bar against Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill.

The Fraternal Order of Police confirmed to FOX 13 News their organization filed a complaint that alleges Gill has engaged in a continuing “pattern of unethical behavior.”

The union has clashed with Gill over recent officer-involved shootings, including the case of Shaun Cowley, the former West Valley City Police Department Detective who has been charged with manslaughter in the death of Danielle Willard.

Cowley’s attorney, Lindsay Jarvis, has also filed a complaint with the Utah State Bar regarding Sim Gill. Jarvis confirmed to FOX 13 News she had filed the complaint but refused further comment.

FOX 13 News contacted the Salt Lake County DA’s Office, who declined to comment.
