Officer held pending dangerousness hearing

Manchester sergeant Was target of NH abuse investigation


But the approach of Hurricane Sandy had led to court officials ordering the building closed at noon, leading to the delay until today. The courts were expected to reopen by noon.

Ranta declined to comment on the pending New Hampshire investigation. Swallow’s wife did not seek a restraining order yesterday.

Swallow has been suspended without pay from the Manchester Police Department, according to Daniel Brown, the town’s labor counsel. Brown said Swallow is also facing administrative disciplinary action “up to and including discharge” from the department, pending a hearing before the town administrator.

Swallow’s wife and other family members declined to comment as they left court.
