A deal that was expected to go smoothly between West Springfield officials and a police captain who has been on paid administrative leave for two years for accusations of excessive force came to a halt Friday evening.
West Springfield Mayor Gregory Neffinger spoke only with CBS 3 on the latest development in this ongoing case.
Capt. Daniel O'Brien is accused of taping a woman's mouth shut and restraining her to a chair after a 2011 incident at the Big E.
Since then he has been on paid administrative leave from the department.
A week ago, Neffinger, O'Brien, O'Brien's attorney and West Springfield police Chief Ronald Campurciani met behind closed doors for several hours hashing out a deal.
In a brief press conference afterwards, all parties involved said they were happy with the terms.
Now Neffinger says O'Brien came forward on Wednesday with new requests.
He says Monday the city would meet with their lawyers to continue working on a resolution. From there they will be contacting O'Brien's attorneys.
