DENVER — The Denver Civil Service Commission on Tuesday reinstated two police officers who had been fired after the beating of 24-year-old Michael DeHerrera outside a LoDo nightclub in 2009.

No information was released on the reasons for reinstating Officer Devin Sparks and Cpl. Randy Murr, who were fired in March after an investigation found that Sparks assaulted DeHerrera and that both officers lied about it.
