ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Eugene Rodella has been fired from his job as an Española police officer because of a fight two months ago at a tattoo parlor and hookah bar, according to Española Police Chief Julian Gonzales.

And it remains to be seen whether he can keep his license to be a cop as a law enforcement board mulls punishment for Rodella's involvement in the Oct. 7 off-duty rumble that sent two people to the hospital.
