Utah Cop Charged With Assault After Footage Shows Him Ordering K-9 To Attack a Man.


A Utah cop has been charged with aggravated assault after bodycam footage emerged of him ordering a K-9 to attack a black man who was on his knees with his hands in the air in his back yard.

Prosecutors announced Wednesday that charges had been brought against Salt Lake City Police officer Nickolas Pearce following the April 24 incident that left Jeffery Ryans, 36, with damage and infections that could lead to his leg being amputated.
