    From the Baxter Bulletin:

    Following an investigation by the FBI, Bull Shoals Police Chief Dan Sutterfield was arrested Monday on charges of excessive force and filing a false report, according to a press release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Arkansas.

    ...


    FBI agent Tim K. Akins said in an affidavit the charges stem from a July 9, 2013 domestic abuse call Sutterfield and other Bull Shoals police officers responded to.

    ...

    Sutterfield and officer David Chatman responded to the residence, where Dore refused to come out. Officer Brian Williams then joined Sutterfield and Chatman. Once all three were on scene, Sutterfield reportedly made the decision to force entry into the home.

    ...

    Once inside, the officers confronted Dore, but were unable to handcuff the man. Sutterfield then is alleged to have drive-stunned Dore twice with a Taser. (Drive-stunning involves an officer physically placing the Taser against a suspect as opposed to triggering darts that shoot out from the stun gun.)

    Once Dore was handcuffed, the case file reports Sutterfield kicked Dore repeatedly. Sutterfield also allegedly struck Dore multiple times with the butt of a shotgun.

    Sutterfield then reportedly ordered Dore to get up, and when he could not, court documents say Sutterfield used the Taser to stun Dore several more times.

    Williams then left the scene. When Williams returned, Dore was reportedly bleeding from the head. Dore was not bleeding from the head prior to Williams leaving the home, according to records.

    In the affidavit, Chatman told federal investigators he witnessed Sutterfield throw Dore into a fireplace and a wall after officers had him handcuffed.
