NORWALK - Authorities are investigating a bar fight allegedly involving a Norwalk police officer.

Police say the incident took place Monday night at Bradford's Grill & Tavern. Witness Andre Salazar says the off-duty officer, since identified as Richard Ribisl, fought a customer at the bar and harassed several others.

In a cellphone video, Ribisl can be seen slapping the phone out of Salazar's hands, all the while expressing that he was indeed a police officer.

Norwalk Police Chief Thomas Kulhawik says he is aware of the situation and is looking into it. Ribisl has already filed a report detailing his account of what happened.
