A Eunice police officer who allegedly used excessive force during a February 2013 traffic stop has been suspended from the Eunice Police Department.
The officer used force to arrest Archillus Hebert during the stop. The officer's dash camera recorded the incident. That video was leaked to the internet in October.
Hebert later pleaded guilty to DWI and resisting arrest.
According to Eunice Police Chief Ronald Dies, the FBI, who was called in to investigate the incident, found the officer did not commit any kind of criminal wrongdoing.
However, Dies says the officer violated the department's policy and was suspended for his role in the incident. Dies said he could not say how long the suspension will last, but he said the officer has not returned from his suspension.
