BPD officer Corey Krug, who was accused of using excessive force on a man outside of a bar in Buffalo, has been found not guilty on three counts. The jury is deadlocked on one of count, according to WIVB. The incident in question happened in 2014.

US Attorney James Kennedy released the following statement:

“The defendant, like every person on the street, is guaranteed certain rights under our Constitution. Among those rights are the rights to due process and a fair trial. The defendant exercised his constitutional rights and the jury acquitted him on three counts. That is the way our Constitution and our system of justice are supposed to work. We accept the jury’s verdict, and we will be seeking an immediate retrial of the defendant on Count 4 of the Superseding Indictment.”
