UPDATE: NH AG launches criminal investigation into high-speed chase suspect's arrest
The N.H. Attorney General's Office have started a criminal investigation surrounding the facts and events of the arrest of a suspect in a high-speed chase who appeared to be surrendering.
Two troopers have been relieved of duty following an arrest caught on video in New Hampshire that showed police repeatedly striking Richard Simone, 50 or Worcester, Mass.
In New Hampshire, Col. Robert Quinn told reporters Thursday that his New Hampshire state trooper isn't being paid. A statement from Massachusetts Col. Richard McKeon says a Massachusetts state trooper has been relieved of duty pending an internal hearing scheduled for Friday.
The two troopers weren't identified.
News helicopter video of the police pursuit from Massachusetts to New Hampshire on Wednesday showed Simone stepping slowly out of his truck, kneeling and putting his hands on the ground before several officers rushed him.
Both Quinn and McKeon have called the video disturbing.
