OPELOUSAS, La. (AP) - A state judge has dismissed a lawsuit
accusing three Opelousas police officers of brutality.
Judge James Doherty ruled there was insufficient evidence to
bring the case to trial.
Adrien Henry filed suit in 2008 against S05 p.m.
Brody Ortego and Freddie Henderson, a reserve officer. Henry
claimed excessive force by the officers left him with injuries
after his October 2007 arrest.
All three officers have remained on
the force. Police Chief Perry Gallow says an internal affairs
investigation found no evidence to support Henry's claims.
Baton Rouge attorney Donald Dobbins, who represented Henry,
couldn't be reached for comment on Sunday.
