Three Connecticut police officers caught on camera 'kicking and stomping on man they'd subdued with a stun gun'
Three Connecticut police officers have been put on administrative leave after they were caught on video brutally beating a suspect in a local park.
Elson Morales, Joseph Lawlor and Clive Higgins, all 10-year veterans of the Bridgeport Police Department, are shown on the tape kicking and stomping on a man they had already subdued with a stun gun.
Police Chief Joseph Gaudett Jr. said he learned about the video last week and promptly ordered the city's Office of Internal Affairs to investigate the beating. He also notified the Bridgeport State's Attorney.
'If violations are found, we will take action. Our officers are held to high standards and rightfully so, and we intend to maintain these standards.'
