— A Yukon police officer slipped on ice and broke his leg Tuesday, the city's police chief said.

Officer Chris Brugh slipped and fell at Yukon High School about 4:30 a.m., Police Chief John Corn said.

Police received complaints about possible suspicious activity at the school late Monday, and Brugh took a police dog to patrol the grounds on foot. He slipped on a patch of ice and broke his lower right leg.

No suspicious activity was found at the school.

Brugh will not be able to put his full weight on his leg for eight weeks, but he was in good condition at a hospital where he was expected to undergo surgery Tuesday to place a rod in his leg, Corn said.

The officer is expected to make a full recovery.
