Former Ala. police officer indicted by grand jury
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — U.S. Department of Justice officials say a former Town Creek police officer is being indicted for violating a man's civil rights during an arrest in 2009.
Officials say an indictment charges 32-year-old Brandon Shane Mundy, of Oxford, with hitting a man with a dangerous weapon and causing bodily injury to the man. The indictment also charges Mundy with denying the man his constitutional right to be free from the use of unreasonable force by law enforcement.
If convicted, Mundy could face a maximum of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Department of Justice officials say the FBI is assisting with the investigation.
It was unclear Tuesday if Mundy has a lawyer.
