3 La. troopers charged with beating black motorist

Three Louisiana state troopers were arrested and charged this month with simple battery after violently arresting a Black motorist two years ago, The Associated Press reported Thursday.

In body camera footage obtained by the AP, the three troopers can be seen on top of Antonio Harris, the motorist, following a high-speed chase. Harris had surrendered to the officers, but they continued to slap, punch and knee him multiple times.

The troopers — Jacob Brown, Dakota DeMoss and George Harper — face misdemeanor charges in the incident after local prosecutors dropped felony charges of malfeasance in office. All three men are white.

Documents obtained by HuffPost show the three former troopers were charged on May 5.

Louisiana State Police did not immediately respond to a request for comment about the charges against the officers on Thursday.
