DANBURY, Conn. (AP) - Danbury's police chief says four officers have violated the city's police rules governing rudeness and civility during a routine traffic stop and that the matter has been referred to state prosecutors.

Baker says the incident occurred during a traffic stop on March 8 and that the motorist involved did not complain.

Baker did not identify the officers who were accused or detail what is alleged to have happened.
