"I don't know who started that rumor," he said, but it's not true.
Ed Braim resigned from the Saratoga Springs Police Department in December after he allegedly assaulted a man at a Caroline Street bar.
He was one of three officers suspended for the alleged assault, but the only one who was charged criminally. The other two officers were suspended for an undisclosed amount of time.
Braim resigned and the charges were dropped, though he may still be facing a lawsuit (though I can't find it in the county database, if he is).
Anyway, Bowen said "he is not working for us and I have no intention of hiring him."
So let the rumors cease.
