Troy Police Release Radio Calls and 911 Transcripts from Bar Brawl

TROY -- Troy police released audio recordings of police during a scuffle with bar patrons over the weekend. They also released two 911 transcripts from Kokopellis when the fight first broke out.

Captain John Cooney from the Troy Police Department says, "There was indeed a chaotic situation present when our officers arrived at the scene."

Troy's Acting District Attorney, Aurther Glass says, "All facets and complaints of the night will be investigated. The situation is fluid as new evidence is acquired each day."

The new evidence corresponds with numerous police reports obtained by CBS6, but Pastor Willie Bacote from Missing Link Street Ministry says it's still not enough to convince him and others that the situation was handled the proper way.

"We'd have to look at and hear the 911 tapes. We haven't heard anything of that sort. This is something new to us," says Pastor Willie.

Captain Cooney says he continues to stand by his officers and their actions. He says the 43 second Facebook video does not represent the situation as it occurred, but it's the only evidence the public has seen.

At this time one complaint has been filed against the officers' conduct. The NY State Police are involved with this investigation.
