(EVANSVILLE) - Four Evansville police officers are suspended without pay after body camera video showed two of them using force against a handcuffed burglary suspect and screaming at him.

Police Chief Billy Bolin held a new conference Friday saying two officers and a third who did nothing to intervene have been suspended for 21 days without pay and recommended for dismissal. He says a sergeant who reported the officers' actions were justified was also suspended for 21 days without pay and recommended for demotion.

The Evansville Courier & Press reports the officers' names haven't been released.

The incident occurred October 29. Bolin says the video shows an officer who was searching the handcuffed suspect poked his hand on a needle in the suspect's pocket before the force and screaming ensued.
