Video from Evansville Police Shows Officer Hit Handcuffed Suspect in 'Groin Area'
** (Disclaimer: Video posted strictly for educational and information purposes only) ** A former assistant chief with the Evansville Police Department (EPD) has been suspended for five-days. The Evansville Police Merit Board approved Sergeant Rob Hahn's five-day suspension. The suspension resulted from Hahn's actions on the job over a month ago. According to EPD, Hahn responded to the Arrowhead Motel after receiving a tip about a man with an out-of-county, felony warrant. The body camera footage shows Hahn violating EPD's use of force policy. EPD says Hahn threw the suspect against the wall, onto the bed, and then hitting him in the groin. He reported hitting the suspect to his supervising lieutenant the day it happened. EPD tells that Hahn did not actually miss work, he missed five days of pay. We are told his suspension is over and that he is on regular duty.
