"I've heard complaints from blacks and from whites, really," Hamm said. "But ... these are allegations until otherwise proven."
Montgomery Police Chief Pete A. Lopez also declined to talk about what happened, saying he didn't want to interfere with an investigation into the incident by the Fayette County Sheriff's Department.
"I didn't feel I had to oversee these officers any more than any other officers," Lopez said of Leavitt and Hutchinson. "Just because someone puts on a uniform doesn't make them right all the time."
Earlier this week, another woman said Leavitt was called to her home to break up a fight between her husband and another man in September 2007.
Lakisha White said Leavitt jumped on her husband's back and Maced him when her husband turned his back on the officer. White said she was Maced too, and Leavitt grabbed her by the back of the neck, injuring her spine.
"It took [Twan Reynolds] getting hurt that bad to get anything done about it," she said at the meeting Thursday.
Leavitt said last week that he was under the impression that White's husband, Roderick White, was under the influence of crack cocaine during the September 2007 incident. A house near where the incident occurred is a known crack house, Leavitt said at the time.
"Anybody who knows us knows we don't do drugs," Lakisha White said. "[Roderick White] hasn't drank in months. It was absolutely ludicrous for him to say that."
