2 Braddock Cops Suspending for Fighting

Two Braddock police officers have been suspended after getting into a fight at their police station.

Braddock Mayor John Fetterman said the fight started around 11:30 p.m. Thursday. The officers weren't injured in the "very short" altercation according to the mayor.

The unidentified officers have been suspended without pay.

Authorities say the Allegheny County District Attorney's Office will investigate.

Fetterman said the fight ended when the men realized they were behaving inappropriately and when another officer in the room broke up the fight.
