In a statement made by M.A. Peter Paravati, Oneida County Undersheriff, the two officers were on leave while the investigation is pending. The Sheriff’s office learned of the investigation only after the officers begun taking their leaves. He himself could not make any administrative action regarding the said incident because he had not yet learned sufficient details regarding the investigation.
