Arraignment scheduled for Springfield cops charged in assault outside Nathan Bills


SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – An arraignment will be held next week in Springfield for the former and current officers charged in connection with an assault and alleged cover-up near Nathan Bills Bar back in 2015.

The attorney general’s office announced today that the arraignment would be held Thursday in Hampden Superior Court. 

12 current Springfield police officers, a retired officer, and one former officer who is now a state trooper were indicted on various charges last month. 

The charges come from an assault on four victims in a parking lot near Nathan Bills in Springfield, and an alleged cover-up. 

The 12 current officers are all suspended without pay.
