LEOMINSTER, Mass. — An investigation into the allegation an off-duty police officer used a racial slur toward Red Sox outfielder Carl Crawford could be completed as early as Monday, but interim Police Chief Robert Healey already knows there won't be any criminal charges.
The officer's name has been closely guarded, and he has been placed on desk duty.
"This is clearly not a criminal investigation. It's an internal investigation regarding rules and regulations," Healey said Friday.
