Off-duty Allentown police officer was drunk, violent, neighbors say

A member of the Allentown police force is at the center of two investigations.

Both stem from an incident three weeks ago at 12th and Chew Streets.

Witnesses claim the off-duty officer was intoxicated when he left Candida's Bar, and that he damaged an air conditioning unit and broke a car window on his way home.

The witnesses say the officer returned later, assaulted a bar patron and used racial slurs.

Neighbors want this addressed.

No charges have been filed so far, as the criminal and internal affairs investigations continue.
