[Protecting their turf?] A YouTube video of feuding Delaware County police officers is making international headlines at the same time an investigation is under way in the District Attorney's Office.
"Get out of Darby, get out of Darby," Robert Smythe, chief in Darby Borough, can be heard yelling at a Colwyn Borough officer. Smythe was being led away by officers.
On March 18, police from Colwyn and Darby Boroughs responded to a call for a woman who had been beaten. At one point, Smythe is alleged to have shut a police car's door, injuring Colwyn Officer Clinton Craddock, according to one official.
Smythe did not return a call for comment.
"One of our officers was rendering aid to someone who needed it," Colwyn Council President Tonette Pray said Monday. "It is just a shame that one officer gets hurt by another officer."
