BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (WOOD) - Two Battle Creek police officers have been placed on administrative leave as they are under investigation for "off-duty behavior," according the police chief.

The two have been on administrative leave since July 30.
Hampton would only say that the investigation into the two involves "off-duty behavior." The investigation should be completed by Friday.
Hampton stressed that the accusations against the two are, at this point, only allegations and the officers have a right to privacy.
