SARATOGA SPRINGS - A Saratoga City Police Officer gives up his job in hopes of having charges against him dismissed.

Edward Braim is charged with assault after an off-duty bar fight last month on Caroline Street.

In addition to giving up his job and weapons, he's also agreed to pay the medical expenses for the victim.

Two of his fellow officers were also involved in the fight, but are not charged.

Braim has been with the force for more than a decade.
