3 Arkansas Officers Suspended After Violent Arrest Beating Video Surfaced



Three Arkansas Officers Suspended After Being Caught Violently Beating A Man On Live

Three Arkansas police officers have been placed on leave after they were caught on camera beating an individual in the town of Mulberry, authorities said on Sunday.

The viral video shows two officers repeatedly punching and kicking the individual’s head and body as a third officer kept the person pinned down.

At one point, one of the officers appears to slam the individual’s head into the ground. Arkansas State Police on Sunday evening said they had opened an investigation into the officers’ use of force during the incident, which occurred outside a convenience store.

The agency identified the individual in the video as Randall Worcester, 27, of Goose Creek, S.C. State police said he was charged with second-degree battery, resisting arrest, refusal to submit, possessing an instrument of crime, criminal trespass, criminal mischief, terroristic threatening and second-degree assault.

Worcester was transported to a local hospital for treatment and was later jailed following his release, the agency said.

“The state police investigation will be limited to the use of physical force by the deputies and police officer,” the statement reads. “Upon completion of the investigation, the case file will be submitted to the Crawford County prosecuting attorney who will determine whether the use of force by the law enforcement officers was consistent with Arkansas laws.”

The Crawford County Sheriff’s Office said it had requested state police open the investigation.
