Rochester Police Officer Suspended For Allegedly Choking Person in Handcuffs

A Rochester police officer has been suspended with pay following an incident that authorities say was caught on police body camera video. 

Earlier this month dozens of officers responded to East and Alexander streets for reports of a large fight. 

Authorities say the video in question showed an officer choking a person that had been taken into custody and was already in handcuffs. 

The case has been referred to the FBI.
