BROOKLYN- Police officers in this village, best known for its massage parlors and strip clubs, called in sick Wednesday in apparent retaliation for the reinstatement of Police Chief Harold Johnson.

Earlier, the chief had been placed on administrative leave by village trustees. Now, Johnson said he has been reinstated by Mayor Nathaniel O'Bannon III. The mayor could not be reached for comment.
