New Orleans, La. -
Two New Orleans police officers face suspension without pay as well as criminal charges linked to separate beating allegations.
FOX 8 received this news release from NOPD Tuesday evening:
Mike Field and Officer Jamal Kendrick will be placed on emergency suspension
tomorrow without pay after both were charged today with Battery and Malfeasance
in Office in two separate incidents last year.
February 19th, 2012, Field allegedly repeatedly struck a man who was
handcuffed and seated in the Eighth District Police Station on Royal Street.
More than one New Orleans Police officer reported the incident to the
department's Public Integrity Bureau (PIB). An investigation was conducted
and its findings turned over to the Orleans Parish District Attorney's
Office. Subsequently, today, the DA filed the charges against
Field. Field is a 28 year veteran of the department.
October 13, 2012, Jamal Kendrick tried to pull a driver over, but the driver
refused and instead gave chase. When Kendrick was able to stop the
vehicle, he was videotaped by the recorder in his police car as he handcuffed
the driver and then struck him. PIB investigated the incident and
provided the facts to the DA's Office, which in turn charged Kendrick today
with Battery and Malfeasance in Office. Kendrick joined the NOPD in
September of 2009.
