NATCHEZ – Natchez Police Chief Mike Mullins says two police officers who were arrested on federal charges this past week had also been the subject of an internal police departemnt investigation.
But, Mullins said in Saturday’s Natchez Democrat, the prime complainant in the case never contacted the Natchez Police Department or responded to inquires from the department’s investigators.
Sealed federal indictments charging two officers were opened Friday.
Both men face two counts of civil rights violations for the alleged May 2009 beating of two men.
