SHARON HILL, Pa. (CBS) — A Delaware County police officer is free on $50,000 bail after his arrest in connection with an incident earlier this month at a SEPTA trolley stop in Sharon Hill.

Sharon Hill cop Stephen Capizzi is facing ten misdemeanor and summary offenses including simple assault, harassment, and tampering with a police report.

Delaware County prosecutors say the 27-year-old Collingdale resident patted down two men, asking about drugs.

When a woman they were with intervened, authorities say Capizzi began shaking her and threw her to ground.

He’s also accused of punching two of the commuters at the trolley station.

Police say he then altered the police report describing what happened.

Capizzi joined the Sharon Hill Police Department nearly three years ago.  His next court date is scheduled for January 10th.
