12 Springfield officers investigated for parking lot beating

The Associated Press

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — A newspaper is reporting that 12 Springfield police officers are being investigated for the beating of several men in a parking lot 18 months ago.

The Republican newspaper of Springfield reports the Hampden County District Attorney's Office is investigating after receiving a report from the internal affairs unit of the Springfield Police Department.

The April 2015 fight happened after a confrontation at a bar between several off-duty officers and four men.

Later, in the parking lot, the men say the off-duty officers badly beat them, including hitting one from behind with a baton and another with a Taser.

One had a broken leg, concussion and teeth knocked out, but a police report described their injuries as "minor cuts and scrapes."

No charges were ever filed.
