A Marblehead, Massachusetts, police officer is on paid administrative leave after an incident last year involving a swastika, Chief Robert Picariello announced in a statement Tuesday.
That the incident took place more than a year ago was the only detail Picariello provided about it. The officer was not named.
The chief said the incident is a "personnel matter" that's currently under investigation.
"We are engaging an independent investigation and will take appropriate action based on those results," Picariello said in the statement.
