NASHUA - Two state troopers seen on video repeatedly punching a suspect after a high-speed chase have been identified more than two months later.
The two have been charged criminally after a controversial video surfaced of Richard Simone getting punched several times while he was being arrested in Nashua back on May 11.
New Hampshire State trooper Andrew Monaco, 31, has been charged with three counts of simple assault. Massachusetts State trooper Joseph Flynn, 32, faces two counts of simple assault.
The officers are subject to an enhanced penalty because they were on duty at the time of alleged excessive use of force, the NH Attorney General’s office said.
Simone is accused of leading police on a chase from Holden, Mass. to Nashua. During Simone's arraignment, he had a visibly swollen eye and bloody ear.
The two officers are scheduled to be arraigned on Sept. 13.
