Former Police Officer Convicted

After three hours of deliberations, a Madison County jury convicted a former police officer of 2nd Degree Official Misconduct.

Investigators say Billy Beavers, who used to work for the Berea Police Department, didn't file a use of force report after kicking a suspect. They say Beavers kicked James Hunt after a police chase.

An assault charge against the former lieutenant was dismissed Wednesday on the first day of the trial.

The jury fined Beavers one dollar as a punishment.
