Judge refuses to reinstate charges against man beaten by officer

Posted By on Fri, Mar 23, 2012 at 10:09 AM

Little Rock attorney Keith Hall sends along late word that Sherwood judge Milas Hale ruled on Tuesday that criminal charges will not be reinstated against Hall's client Chris Erwin, the man seen getting pummeled on a sidewalk in front of Ferneau restaurant by Little Rock police Lieutenant David Hudson, in the widely-circulated video shot just before Halloween last year.

Erwin, who was beaten by Hudson after Hudson told him to leave a private party at the bar, was charged with resisting arrest, criminal trespass, and disorderly conduct. Judge Hale had dismissed the criminal counts against Erwin in February, but prosecutors asked him to reconsider.
