Most charges of violent crimes come after police respond to and take control of a situation. Yet, there are times when police find themselves the ones charged with a crime and in need of legal assistance to deal with the situation they are facing. There was recently a situation in Indiana that resulted in two Indianapolis police officers being charged with battery.
The incident occurred as the off-duty officers were apparently in a bar having a drink. A 29-year-old man was said to be causing problems and refusing to leave the bar. The 40-year-old and 46-year-old officers confronted the man and showed him a badge, which the patron apparently didn't believe was real.
