Three Seabrook Officers Suspended After Video Surfaces
Three police officers in Seabrook have been suspended after a video surfaced showing an officer slamming a suspect into a wall at the police station more than four years ago.
Town Manager Bill Manzi tells the Portsmouth Herald the officers were put on paid administrative leave Tuesday, one day after the video appeared on YouTube.
The video, dated Nov. 11, 2009, shows three officers walking a shirtless man down a hall. One of the officers slams the man into a wall and he falls to the floor. A struggle follows and the suspect eventually falls out of view. Two officers stand smiling over the downed man.
Neither the officers nor the man are identified.
The person who posted the video did not respond to an email seeking comment.
A police dispatcher said there would be no comment from the department.
