A DeKalb County Police sergeant and two officers were indicted May 10 for allegedly beating suspects.
DeKalb County District Attorney Robert James said the officers had “a pattern of conduct…that was being directed by a sergeant to junior officers wherein they would carry out beatings and physical assaults on suspects, sometimes while they were in handcuffs.”
Officers Blake Andrew Norwood and Arthur Parker III were indicted on counts of aggravated battery, aggravated assault and making a false statement.
In addition to those counts, Sgt. Anthony Remone Robinson was indicted on counts of aggravated assault, simple assault, battery, violation of oath by a public officer and violation of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act.
The officers had until 4 p.m. May 10 to turn themselves in.
“It is a sad and unfortunate day in that we have to bring…our own before a DeKalb County grand jury,” James
