INKSTER, Mich. » Two police officers have been suspended without pay after the videotaped beating of a black man during a January traffic stop southwest of Detroit in Inkster.
WXYZ-TV reported Tuesday that officer Chuck Randazzo is suspended for 15 days and Sgt. Shawn Kritzer for 30 days.
Union representative Al Lewis says Randazzo was suspended for excessive force and bringing the department disrepute. Kritzer was suspended for improperly administering medical attention to Floyd Dent.
Officer William Melendez was fired last month and charged with assault. He denies any wrongdoing.
Dash cam video shows Melendez pulling the 57-year-old Dent from his car and punching him. WDIV-TV aired the video in March.
Inkster on Tuesday named Joe Thomas interim police chief. He replaces Vicki Yost, who quit two days after Melendez was charged.
