The Providence Police Department said Friday that Capt. Stephen Gencarella has been accused of violating several department rules governing conduct, lawfulness and truthfulness. “Based on the facts and circumstances presented, Providence Police administration has recommended that Capt. Gencarella be terminated from his employment,” the department said in a statement announcing its decision.

Gencarella is currently employed but went on injured-on-duty leave on July 6, a department spokesperson confirmed to the newspaper. Under labor rules, he may choose to resign...

Authorities also said that the man, Ashton Porter, 45, of Alpharetta, Ga., had been charged with five counts of assault upon a firefighter or police officer, one count of trespass or refusing to leave private property and one count of vandalism over $400, according to charging documents.

The incident happened Aug. 28 as Nikkita Brown walked in a park near North Avenue Beach. Video of the struggle was released Thursday by Brown’s lawyers; while prior videos showed the confrontation from afar, the police footage shows how the officer told Brown to leave and threatened to arrest her as she walked and asked him to keep distant. Brown was walking her dog when an officer walked up to her and told her the beach was closed, said Keenan Saulter, her attorney. The new video starts with Brown asking the unmasked officer to “please respect my space” as he comes near her. “Respect your space? I’m about to put handcuffs on you,” the officer tells Brown. “You do not have a mask on,” Brown says. “I don’t need a mask. I’m outside,” the officer tells her. A moment later, he tells her, “The exit is that way. You need to exit.” “Please,...

    An Anaheim police officer was treated early Monday for a potential exposure to fentanyl, authorities said. The officer was driving a suspect, who police said had drugs on him, to the station when he started feeling lightheaded and his feet and legs began to feel numb — symptoms consistent with fentanyl exposure, according to Sgt. Shane Carringer, a spokesperson for the Anaheim Police Department. The officer, who was not identified, pulled over and called for help. He was treated at the scene by Anaheim Fire & Rescue and did not receive naloxone, a drug used to reverse opioid overdoses, Carringer said. The incident comes days after the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department released a graphic video showing a deputy who authorities said overdosed from an exposure to fentanyl — a video that since has gone viral and sparked a backlash among some who think it stokes overblown fears.
