This investigation uncovered how a state trooper, who beat a suspect on videotape, doctored an arrest report and hid the existence of the videotape from the local prosecutor and the courts. When reporters showed the original arrest report indicating there was a videotape to the local district attorney, he investigated and then sought an indictment against the troopper for battery, perjury, and falsifying public records.
