“SPRINGFIELD – Illinois State Police say a Springfield Police officer was arrested following an investigation into an altercation that happened on February 27.
Springfield Police say the officer is 32-year-old Samuel Rosario, who has been on the force for two years.
ISP officials say they were called by Springfield Police to investigate an altercation between an on-duty Rosario and a 19-year-old man Monday night. According to the preliminary investigation into the incident, the officer was dispatched to a home to investigate a domestic disturbance. Authorities say a 19-year-old male, who is not the suspect in the domestic disturbance call, became upset, leading to a verbal altercation and eventually a physical confrontation between Officer Rosario and the man.”
