According to a statement released Thursday morning by the Caddo Parish District Attorney’s office, the Caddo Parish Grand Jury charged one officer with a felony and a second officer with a misdemeanor on Wednesday.

There also were two off-duty officers at the scene, whom the Grand jury declined to charge with any criminal offense, according to the DA’s office.

Earlier this month, the same Caddo Parish Grand Jury returned no true bills for four individuals who were arrested by police for charges arising out of the same incident. Cynthia Davis was arrested for simple assault and battery of a police officer; Torell Lewis was arrested for resisting an officer with force, interfering with a law enforcement investigation and resisting an officer; Antoine Hardeman was arrested for resisting an officer with force, battery of a police officer and interfering with a law enforcement investigation; and Viola Green was arrested for battery of a police officer.

As a result of the findings of the Grand Jury, the charges against those four individuals were dismissed by the district attorney.
