NORWALK, CONN. -- Though criminal charges were dropped against Norwalk Councilman Travis Simms stemming from a raucous party in Norwalk in 2015, an attorney for the former boxer said they are still considering their own legal action, according to The Hour.

Attorney Stephan Seeger said the case was a mistake from the beginning, and they plan to pursue legal remedies over "inappropriate" comments made by the Norwalk police union. Assault charges were filed against Simms, who was accused of hitting the host of the Dec. 5, 2015 party, The Hour reports.

Police union officials also filed an ethics complaint against Simms, saying that he was abusive to the officers who responded to a report of a fight at the party on Flax Hill Road. Seeger did not specify what legal remedies would be pursued or when, The Hour says.
