COHOES – Cohoes Mayor Shawn Morse is responding to a report of a 911 call from his residence.
The Times Union published an article on Sunday stating that police were called to the mayor's house on Friday. The newspaper reported that according to a police record, his wife called and told dispatchers Morse choked her and threw her to the ground.
In a statement sent to NewsChannel 13, Morse called the claims patently false.
The full statement reads: “The claims made in the Albany Times Union are patently false. As Mayor of Cohoes - with the tremendous amount of positive development happening in our city, it is unfortunate that my private life and my family become gossip. And with any family, there are good times and there are challenging times. And during the challenging times, most families get the benefit of working through these difficult times in private. At this time, my family and I are requesting privacy during this challenging and personal time."
