Covington, La.- Two Covington Police Department officers are charged with simple battery and malfeasance in office in connection with alleged use of excessive force on an arrestee.

Investigators with the Covington Police Department says the incident occurred in November 2012 involving the inappropriate conduct by the two Covington officers.

Police say the incident was uncovered in January 2013 by the Department's Internal Affairs Unit and resulted in the arrest of both men. 

The two officers are identified as Anthony Adams and Nicholas Harper.

Police say Adams, who had been employed by the department for four years, resigned when the investigation began.  On the other hand, Harper remains employed with the department, but are on unpaid leave at this time. Harper has been with the department since June 2011.

A spokesman for the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office says both men have posted a $7500 bond and were released.
