Assault, attempted assault, and official misconduct:

Officer Joel Edouard, 36, was stripped of his gun and reassigned to desk duty following the July 23rd arrest of 32-year-old Jahmiel Cuffee. Edouard allegedly spotted Cuffee rolling a joint and approached him. Cuffee reportedly showed his ID to Edouard and several other officers, then struggled with them while they attempted to arrest him; the officers wrestled the man to the ground before Edouard started stomping on his head.
