She volunteered to talk after after her East Rochester police friend was charged with DWI. But when she wanted to leave she said a Sheriff's deputy threw her down and she says she has the bruises to prove it.
Sergeant Paul Monachino was arrested for DWI early Tuesday morning after a crash with a minivan that injured three teenagers.
The Monroe County Sheriff's Office says a friend of Sgt. Monachino, Coleen Morrello, tried to take the fall for him.
Sheriff's spokesman John Helfer sais 41-year-old Coleen Morrello came to the scene of the crash and told police that she had been driving.
She was taken in for questioning and, according to Helfer, a "scuffle" broke out injuring a female deputy.
Morrello is charged with harassment and resisting arrest and more charges are pending.
Today, Morrello spoke with News 10NBC.
