Oh rumors...

Former City Police Officer Ed Braim is not a Saratoga County Sheriff's deputy, according to Sheriff James Bowen, despite what Bowen called "nasty rumors" to the contrary.

"I don't know who started that rumor," he said, but it's not true.

Ed Braim resigned from the Saratoga Springs Police Department in December after he allegedly assaulted a man at a Caroline Street bar.

He was one of three officers suspended for the alleged assault, but the only one who was charged criminally. The other two officers were suspended for an undisclosed amount of time. 

Braim resigned and the charges were dropped, though he may still be facing a lawsuit (though I can't find it in the county database, if he is).

Anyway, Bowen said "he is not working for us and I have no intention of hiring him."

So let the rumors cease.

People start rumors because they have nothing better to do. Sad but true. What is even more sad is the people who believe them.

Jim Bowen is a lot smarter than to hire another Braim. He had one and that one was not hired by him, but the former sheriff back in the sixties.
