Cohoes mayor goes on talk radio to address 911 call

The Cohoes mayor is speaking for the first time since a report of a domestic violence incident at his home.
As NewsChannel 13 reported on Tuesday, Shawn Morse called the situation "personal," involving his child.
Over the weekend, the Times Union cited a police report, showing Brenda Morse called 911 on Friday, saying her husband grabbed her by the throat and threw her down.
Mayor Morse spoke about the incident on Talk 1300/98.7 Wednesday morning.
"The story and what was on the call and all that stuff was never heard by anybody," said the mayor, while speaking on the radio. "The 'Times Union' didn't have any information of that."
When asked why his wife called 911, Morse replied: "You know what? We're going to have to find that out, because I don't know that answer."
The investigation is now being handled by state police.
