An Ottawa police officer has been suspended.

Ottawa police suspended an officer and launched an investigation amid reports of a fistfight at the Elgin Street police station.

Media reports say tactical officers had an argument this week – apparently related to overtime work – that turned into a fistfight.

Police are not commenting on the fistfight reports. But the force did confirm it suspended an officer and launched an investigation through the Ottawa Police Professional Standards Section.
