(WTNH)–Interim New Haven police chief Anthony Campbell has ordered assistant chief Luiz Casanova be suspended for one day without pay after an investigation into a verbal altercation between Casanova and a patrol officer last week.
According to police, Casanova used “inappropriate language” toward a patrol officer. Sources told News 8 that he used a racial slur in that argument.
Casanova must serve the one-day suspension before the end of this year.
The suspension was categorized as “conduct unbecoming of an officer.”
