Indianapolis—Friday, Marion County Prosecutor Carl Brizzi (R) announced his office will not be filing charges against 15 year-old Brandon Johnson.
Johnson claims officers severely beat him when he tried to comfort his little brother who was being arrested. Officers said Johnson was trying to start a riot.
IMPD is currently conducting an internal investigation. Meanwhile, the four officers accused of using excessive force, were assigned to administrative duty. Federal authorities are also reviewing the facts of the case to determine whether their involvement is needed.
Brizzi said there was not enough evidence to file criminal charges. He also added that his decision had nothing to do with the internal affairs investigation. He wouldn't go so far to say as Johnson didn't do anything wrong, but said it didn't rise to the level of having charges filed.
