FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) — A fired northwest Arkansas police officer was sentenced to four years’ probation after pleading guilty to felony battery for kneeing an inmate in the face.
Court records show that 33-year-old Christopher Munoz Brownlow was accused of attacking an inmate at the Logan County jail last year.
The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that the former police officer in Paris, Arkansas, entered his guilty plea on Friday in Logan County Circuit Court.
A probable cause affidavit says the inmate suffered several fractures around his eye and another in his jaw and had to undergo surgery to insert a titanium plate and screws in his face.
