Bethel police officer charged with assault, misconduct for rough 2014 arrest

  • February 19, 2016

“A now ex-Bethel police officer whose rough arrest of an Alaska Native man in July 2014 was captured on video is facing criminal charges for the incident.

Andrew J. Reid, 29, faces charges of fourth-degree assault and official misconduct as a result of the incident in front of the Alaska Commercial Co. store in Bethel’s town center. The charges didn’t generate any publicity when they were filed in December and are just now coming to light.”
