Former State Trooper Indicted For Allegedly Beating, Biting Soldier

PIKEVILLE, Ky. (AP) - An eastern Kentucky grand jury has indicted a former Kentucky State Police trooper accused of beating and biting a West Virginia National Guardsman.
Jared Alfrey, 28, of Belfry, faces a second-degree assault charge. Alfrey resigned in July, soon after National Guardsman Randall McCoy, of Williamson, W.Va., accused the trooper of driving him and his girlfriend to an abandoned mine in July and beating him after arresting the couple on a domestic violence call.
Alfrey, in the citations he wrote, said McCoy asked to move his
handcuffs to the front because of a back injury. While the handcuffs were off, McCoy grabbed the trooper before being cuffed again, Alfrey wrote.
Alfrey joined state police in December 2005.
His phone line was disconnected and he could not be reached for
comment Friday. It could not be immediately determined if he had an
attorney.
