UTICA, N.Y. -- The city of Utica has hired an investigator to look into the alleged physical fight between two common council members at a meeting last week.
The investigator, Michael Sciotti, has been used in past cases. He was hired because the city cannot handle the case internally due to potential conflicts of interest.
There were multiple eye-witness accounts of the alleged fight between Joe Marino and Frank DiBrango.
Sciotti is going to be interviewing everyone who was present at the meeting in order to determine what happened.
NewsChannel 2 has requested the video recording of the meeting and officials say WKTV will get the recording once the investigation is complete.
