SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — South Bend's mayor says the city police chief who was accused of not helping an officer break up a fight did nothing wrong and won't be punished.
Mayor Pete Buttigieg (BOO'-tah-juhj) made the statement to the city's Board of Public Safety on Wednesday. WSBT-TV reports the board's director disagreed with the mayor's decision.
State police investigated after some activists complained in April that Police Chief Ron Teachman stayed inside the Martin Luther King Jr. Recreation Center while another officer went to break up a fight in the parking lot.
State police handing their findings over to the board earlier this month. The city and state police have said that report is confidential.
