SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say three members of an upstate New York police department have been suspended after an off-duty altercation at a local bar.
The Saratoga Springs Police Department announced Tuesday night that it has launched an investigation after a man called police early Monday morning to report that he had been assaulted by three people he believed were off-duty Saratoga cops.
The alleged incident occurred at a Caroline Street bar in Saratoga's popular downtown entertainment district, located a block away from police headquarters.
Police officials say the man was treated for non-serious injuries.
Officials say the three officers have been suspended pending the outcome of an investigation.
Rowdy behavior in downtown Saratoga in recent years led some public safety officials to push for an early closing time for bars.
