ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Prosecutors say two of three Albuquerque police officers who were investigated for their conduct during a May arrest at a park will not be criminally charged in the incident.
The Albuquerque Journal reports that Officers Ronald Surran and Shad Solis will not be charged in the May 31 incident, but misdemeanor battery and aggravated battery charges are pending in state District Court against officer Connor Rice.
The officers were responding to reports about suspected drug activity. Videos taken from the officers' lapel-mounted cameras show Solis and Rice shooting one man with a stun gun four times and Rice punching and jumping on the back of another who is screaming "I surrender."
The second man was being held at gunpoint by Surran, who had a boot on the man's head
