An Albuquerque police officer is on leave Monday after allegedly accusing two people to fight.

Police said Officer Gregory Donofrio responded to a call of two neighbors fighting near Lomas and Washington Sunday.

The two neighbors told police that Officer Donofrio told them to fight in order to settle an ongoing dispute.

Donofrio is on paid administrative leave until an Internal Affairs investigation is finished.
