Joseph Flynn, 32, has been indicted on two simple assault charges after being caught on camera beating Richard Simone after a multi-state car chase. Andrew Monaco - the N.H. state trooper also seen in the video - pleaded guilty to three simple assault charges last month.

Video captured by a TV news helicopter appears to show Simone surrendering and officers then punching him repeatedly.
