Albany Police Officer Arrested, Charged with Assault

An Albany Police officer is under arrest and two others have been suspended after an early morning incident on March 16 on First Street that stemmed from a call for loud music and ended with injuries for at least one man.

Based on video taken by bystanders, and from body cams, Officer Luke Deer is charged with assault and official misconduct.

Two other officers are suspended without pay and charges against them could be forthcoming. The charges against three residents who had been arrested during the incident have been dismissed.
