State police have taken over an investigation into an alleged Prescott bar assault involving law enforcement officers who belong to a motorcycle club.
Prescott police Lt. Ken Morley says the department turned over the investigation of Saturday night's incident involving members of the Iron Brotherhood Motorcycle Club to the Department of Public Safety once Prescott Valley police officers were recognized among the bikers.
DPS spokesman Bart Graves said Thursday that officers from several agencies across the state may be subjects of the investigation.
Prescott police say they were called to a hospital Saturday night and a 23-year-old Glendale man told them he was punched several times by members of the club. He was released after treatment.
Prescott Valley Police spokesman Sgt. Brandon Bonney says no officers are on leave.
