DA Stewart Updates on Indictments of Two SPD Officers [VIDEO]
Caddo Parish District Attorney James Stewart talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about the arrest of two Shreveport police officers on charges of malfeasance and simple battery.
Cinterrica Mosby was indicted on charges of felony malfeasance in office. Phillip Tucker was indicted on charges of simple battery. Charges stem from a Mother's day incident at Shreveport's Werner Park.
According to a release from the Caddo District Attorney's Office:
"Earlier this month, the same Caddo Parish Grand Jury returned no true bills for four individuals who were arrested by police for charges arising out of the same incident. Cynthia Davis was arrested for simple assault and battery of a police officer; Torell Lewis was arrested for resisting an officer with force, interfering with a law enforcement investigation and resisting an officer; Antoine Hardeman was arrested for resisting an officer with force, battery of a police officer and interfering with a law enforcement investigation; and Viola Green was arrested for battery of a police officer. As a result of the findings of the Grand Jury, the charges against those four individuals were dismissed by Caddo Parish District Attorney James E. Stewart Sr."
Both officers are represented by attorney Ron Miciotto, who says the two acted appropriately and that they will "vigorously contest this matter."
