ALLEGED POLICE HANDCUFFING INCIDENT UNDER INVESTIGATION ...

City police are looking into whether a patrol sergeant handcuffed a homicide detective during a disagreement as they investigated a reported abduction.
The incident is alleged to have occurred Friday night in the Northwest District after patrol officers secured a possible crime scene in the reported abduction of a female corrections officer, who was later located unharmed.
Sources with knowledge of the incident say homicide detective Joshua Ellsworth arrived to assume control of the investigation. In addition to suspicious deaths, the homicide unit investigates abductions and generally has precedence over those crime scenes.
An argument ensued, and patrol Sgt. John Brickus allegedly placed a handcuff on Ellsworth's right arm. Ellsworth was not arrested, and the argument was defused.
Police confirmed that a request for an internal investigation was filed by one of the officers on Tuesday.
Robert F. Cherry, the city police union president, said both officers were "committed, hardworking police officers with strong reputations" but declined further comment.
Anthony Guglielmi, the Police Department's chief spokesman, said the agency is investigating but will not let the incident distract from crime fighting.

Sounds like a couple of egomaniac cops who need a reality check. What an embarassment for LEO's everywhere.

Wouldn't even be news had it been a pair of accountants breaking one another's pencils.

Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine.
Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.
