Use of Excessive Force and Shock Guns on Woman During Arrest
(POLICE BRUTALITY) Two police officers in Marion County were arrested and charged with “Misconduct in Office and Assault and Battery 1st Degree” after they used excessive force on a woman they were arresting.
The two officers, Corporal Eric Walters and Sergeant Frankie Brown were attempting to arrest an unknown female perpetrator and resolved to using excessive force and shocked her numerous times with a shock gun. While it is not known whether the woman was being aggressive or violent, the claims that the officers used excessive force have not been taken lightly.
The State Law Enforcement division in Oregon is investigating the case and the two officers have already been fired from the Marion County police department and could face up to ten years in prison if found guilty. Both Walters and Brown were given a $10.000 personal recognizance bond by the Marion County Magistrate.
The case is now awaiting trial and 4th Circuit Assistant Solicitor, Shipp Daniel has been asked to prosecute the case. Shipp has stated that he cannot comment on the case itself while it’s still pending.
