A second-generation Rotterdam police officer has been placed on unpaid leave for 30 days stemming from a domestic dispute Thursday morning at a city apartment where he allegedly assumed a boxer’s stance and then fought with cops responding to a domestic disturbance call, according to court papers and police officials.
Patrolman Vincent W. Stone, 34, an eight-year veteran, is also the subject of an internal investigation being conducted by his department and the town attorney into the off-duty confrontation, according to Supervisor Harry Buffardi.
In court Thursday, Stone was represented by a public defender during his arraignment before City Court Judge Mark Blanchfield on a felony assault charge and the offenses of menacing, obstructing governmental administration and resisting arrest, all misdemeanors.
