Three Fort Myers Police Department officers are being investigated for an off-duty incident that happened in Cape Coral, according to a release from the department.

FMPD was notified of the investigation by the Cape Coral Police Department who says the incident stems from an altercation at Dixie Roadhouse.

CCPD says they are also working with the State Attorney’s Office to ensure the integrity of the investigation.

FMPD has placed the three officers on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.

At this time, this is an active, criminal investigation.

We have reached out to one of the owners of Dixie Roadhouse, the City of Cape Coral and the Gulf Coast Police Benevolent Association, all of which could not comment and referred us to CCPD.

Fort Myers City Council Member Kevin Anderson gave us the following statement:

“It’s always unfortunate when incidents occur, but until we know all the facts, we have to withhold judgment.”
