TPD: Officers injured during confrontation
Troy police officers were involved in a confrontation outside a Fourth Street club (map) early Sunday that the TPD says ended with four arrests and injuries to four officers. Part of the incident was captured on video and posted on Facebook -- the blurry video shows officers wrestling people to the ground while using batons. TPD chief John Tedesco tells WNYT he sees the video "as great evidence for the officers and prosecution against the people we arrested." [Troy Record] [TU] [FB] [WNYT]
