ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - The Atlantic City Police Department is under fire on several fronts with two officers and up to four civilian employees accused of wrongdoing.

Officer Dayton Brown is facing charges of domestic assault for allegedly beating up his girlfriend. He was arrested Tuesday and is now suspended without pay.

Meanwhile, Internal Affairs is investigating a video circulating on social media where the officer used language and tone at a citizen that the department describes as "concerning and not condoned."

And finally, two 9-1-1 operators have been busted for allegedly selling and buying drugs while on duty.

Two other employees at the call center are suspended but have not been criminally charged.
