An internal investigation is under way into two Eunice firemen who allegedly beat a man who they though broke into their truck.
Garrett Daville and Ryan Daville are charged with second-degree battery in connection with the incident. Police logs say that when officers arrived on the scene, the suspect was unconscious.
Fire chief Mike Arnold says while the investigation is ongoing, the brothers are still employed by the fire department, saying they are innocent until proven guilty. Arnold adds he only has the power to recommend any terminations. The mayor and the civil service board would have to approve any such moves.
