February 15, 2019 06:41 PM

The Colonie Police Department has closed its investigation into the alleged incident involving Cohoes Mayor Shawn Morse and his estranged wife last year.

Back in November, NewsChannel 13 reported that Shawn and Brenda Morse met at Denny's on Wolf Road.


The couple allegedly argued about separation agreements in the restaurant and the parking lot.

Police say they did a thorough investigation, including interviews with people involved and surveillance video.

Police found Brenda Morse's allegations were inconsistent.

State police are still investigating allegations of abuse by Shawn Morse.
