BLUFFTON - Two Bluffton police officers have been suspended as authorities investigate their alleged involvement in a bar fight in Georgia.
A department news release identified the two as officers Henry Criss and Lindsey Morton. The statement said the suspensions came after an incident late Wednesday at a bar in Tybee Island, Ga.
A Tybee Island police report said that Criss was charged with aggravated assault and battery after he allegedly pulled a gun on another bar patron. The police report says that the officers were intoxicated.
It was not immediately known if the two were represented by attorneys.
