HARTFORD, Vt. (AP) - Officials say Vermont State Police are investigating a Hartford police deputy chief stemming from an alleged domestic altercation.

The Valley News reports (https://bit.ly/2blmqIi ) Leonard Roberts was placed on paid administrative leave on Wednesday, the day the investigation started.

Chief Phil Kasten said Thursday Roberts had been off-duty at the time of the alleged altercation.

Kasten referred all other questions to state police. A spokesman for that agency says he can’t reveal further details yet.

Records show Roberts co-owns a home with another person in nearby Wilder.

A message left at the number listed for the home wasn’t immediately returned.

The police department’s Facebook page says Roberts is a 35-year veteran of the department.
