Two Officers Fired After Traffic Stop Assult

Two Gwinnett County, Georgia police officers are out of a job after multiple videos show their alleged assault of a motorist. 

Master Police Officer Robert McDonald came to assist a supervisor Sgt M.F. Bongiovanni with a traffic stop. Upon arrival, video shows McDonald pulling over Demetrius Hollins from his vehicle and stomping his head as he lay handcuffed on the ground. 

A second video come to light late yesterday that shows Bongiovanni punching Hollins in the head even though the man had his hands up. This happened before the other officer's arrival. 


"What I viewed last night was disturbing to me and disturbing to others," Gwinnett County Police Chief Butch Ayers said at a news conference. "What happened last night involving the officer was embarrassing to the Gwinnett County Police and other law enforcement." 

Both officers, each with less than four years experience, were quickly fired.
