INDIANAPOLIS -- A female off-duty officer with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department was involved in a physical fight with another woman Tuesday night at a park on the city's southwest side, Call 6 Investigates has learned.

Officers were called to Southwestway Park just before 7:00 p.m. for a fight between a 35-year-old woman and a 27-year-old woman. Both women had minor injuries from the fight, according to police.
