Sarno: Indictment Troubling

Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno says new federal indictments issued against a current Springfield  police officer and a former one are very troubling.  

Gregg Bigda and  Steven Vigneault have both denied charges of using excessive force, and  Bigda also was charged with abusive interrogation and writing a false  police report in federal court in Springfield  on Wednesday.  

The charges stem from the aftermath of an arrest of  several juveniles who allegedly stole an undercover police vehicle in  2016. 

Springfield Police Commissioner John Barbieri says Bigda will be suspended without pay due to the indictment.
