You might recall a few months ago when we showed you video of Beloit police officers kicking a suspect outside a stolen vehicle. Now, those officers have reached an agreement with the department.
Officers Mark Smith and Daniel Daly are seen arresting Duane Hutter after Hutter led them on a chase and crashed a stolen vehicle. Both Smith and Daly have agreed to accept lesser disciplinary action in order to avoid a public hearing.
The officers had requested a hearing after they were suspended for 25 days without pay and restricted from getting a promotion or special assignment until 2005.
The hearing, which was scheduled for next week, has been cancelled.
