Two New Orleans Officers on Emergency Suspension

Two New Orleans police officers will be placed on emergency suspension without pay Wednesday.

The officers are charged with battery and malfeasance in office in two separate incidents.

The NOPD says Lt. Mike Field is accused of repeatedly hitting a handcuffed man on February 19, 2012.

It happened at the 8th district police station on Royal Street, officers said.

Field has been with the department for 28 years.

In a separate incident Jamal Kendrick is accused of hitting a suspect as the suspect was being handcuffed.

Police say a camera in his patrol car caught him hitting a driver who initially wouldn’t pull over.

Kendrick joined the force in 2009.
