St. Louis Police Officers Charged With Beating Undercover Detective at 2017 Protest

Three St. Louis police officers were charged on Thursday with beating up an apparent protester who turned out to be an undercover detective on their own team, the authorities said.

The officers were accused of attacking their own colleague during a September 2017 protest in response to the acquittal of Jason Stockley, a white police officer who killed a 24-year-old black man, Anthony Lamar Smith, after a high-speed chase. According to the federal grand jury indictment, the officers threw the detective to the ground, hitting and kicking him while using a riot baton.
