Police Superintendent Announces Retirement

CHICAGO (AP) _ Chicago's police superintendent announced Monday he would retire early as his department tries to deal with two highly publicized videotaped beatings involving off-duty police officers.

Last month, six officers accused of assaulting four businessmen in a bar were removed from street duty, and prosecutors filed felony charges against another officer accused of beating a female bartender.

Superintendent Philip J. Cline said after the videotapes surfaced that he would change the way the department responds to allegations of misconduct.

In announcing his retirement Monday, Cline said he would stay on until a replacement could be found.
