    Three US law enforcement officers suspended over arrest

    MULBERRY, ARKANSAS (AP) – Three Arkansas law enforcement officers were suspended on Sunday following social media outrage over a video that seemingly showed two deputies and an officer striking a suspect under arrest.

    Crawford County Sheriff Jimmy Damante issued a statement on Sunday evening, stating two county deputies will be suspended during the course of the Arkansas state police’s investigation into the incident and the sheriff’s office’s internal investigation. A Mulberry police officer also was suspended.

    “I hold all my employees accountable for their actions and will take appropriate measures in this matter,” Damante said.

    In a statement released on Sunday evening, Mulberry Police Chief Shannon Gregory said the officer involved in the incident is on leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
