“State police are investigating the apparent beating of a suspect by pol-ice officers after a TV news helicopter that was following a high-speed chase across the New Hampshire border caught footage of the arrest from the air.
The driver, 50-year-old Richard Simone of Worcester, who was wanted on multiple warrants, had led police on an hour-long chase from Holden in central Massachusetts to Nashua, N.H., police said.
The video footage caught by Fox 25’s SkyFox helicopter yesterday at about 5 p.m. appeared to show two officers rushing the driver and throwing punches at him after he had lain on the ground after getting out of his truck, and as he was being handcuffed.
State police spokesman David Procopio said one of the officers involved appears to be a Massachusetts State Police officer and the other a New Hampshire police officer.
“We were in a secondary role and it does appear to be one of our own,” Procopio said. “We review every pursuit no matter how they end and in this case we will review the footage and come to a conclusion of what the officer’s role was during the apprehension and the level of force that was used in the arrest to determine whether it was appropriate or not.”
How about this you asswipe; We will watch the video and determine whether the level of force was appropriate or not
Then based on that we will judge you
