Fired Seabrook Officers Plan To File Grievances
Two Seabrook police officers who were fired after they were caught on tape roughing up a suspect at police headquarters are planning to file grievances.
Officers Mark Richardson, who was seen slamming the suspect's head into a wall, and Adam Laurent, who pepper-sprayed the suspect, were fired. Richardson has also been charged with assault in connection with the Nov. 11, 2009, encounter at the Seabrook police station.
Foster's Daily Democrat reports Richardson and Laurent told town staff this week they would file grievances. Officer John Wasson, who was demoted from lieutenant to patrolman following the incident, filed a grievance Thursday. A fourth officer who was suspended for two days has not challenged the disciplinary action.
