Four Off-Duty Manchester, N.H. Police Officers Cleared In Bar Brawl

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The New Hampshire attorney general has cleared four Manchester police officers of any charges stemming from an off-duty bar brawl last year in which a patron said he was beaten up by them.

Attorney General Michael Delaney said the officers’ conduct was justified in a 92-page report released Friday. He had been asked by Manchester’s mayor and the county attorney to review what happened at the Strange Brew Tavern in March 2010 and decide if criminal charges should be filed.

The officers were suspended without pay, and charges had been dropped against the patron who said he was beaten by the officers when he refused to leave the bar.

    They wern’t “Cleared” of anything. The AG refused to proscecute them…….There is a big difference.
