2 Pa. officers suspended for fighting at police station

The short altercation did not harm anyone; officials are investigating what caused the tussle

BRADDOCK, Pa. — Two Braddock police officers have been suspended after getting into a fight at the police station late Thursday.

Mayor John Fetterman said the incident occurred about 11:30 p.m., toward the end of their shifts. The officers weren't injured in the "very short" altercation, which Mr. Fetterman described as "over before it started." The fight ended when the men realized they were behaving inappropriately and another officer in the room broke up the fight, Mr. Fetterman said.

"Unfortunately, a line was crossed," he said, adding that the incident will be investigated to find out what caused the fight and whether any disciplinary action should be taken. Both men are on hourly pay, so they are now effectively suspended without pay.
