SPD: Investigation Of Police Captain Continues Into Off Duty Incident

A Springfield police captain is being investigated for allegedly drawing his weapon in a dispute with a civilian.

The incident involving Richard LaBelle reportedly happened over the weekend in the parking lot of the Walmart on Boston Road.

The Springfield Police Department has been subjected to plenty of bad press lately, including most recently indictments issued to thirteen current and former officers accused of participating in or covering up a beating incident outside a bar and restaurant in 2015.

Police Commissioner Cheryl Clapprood says she will not comment until the investigation has concluded.
