SPD: Captain Suspended Pending Investigation

Springfield Police Department Captain Richard Labelle is being suspended following an off-duty incident.

The department announced on Wednesday that Acting Commissioner Cheryl Clapprood has suspended Labelle for five days without pay due to violating departmental rules and regulations during the incident in the Walmart parking lot on Boston Road.

Labelle was accused of drawing his gun on a civilian.

After the suspension, the SPD says Labelle will be placed on paid leave pending the results of an investigation by the Hampden District Attorney.
