Texas

HOUSTON (AP) — A grand jury has indicted a fired Houston-area police officer accused of kicking a man while another person recorded video of their traffic stop.

A Harris County grand jury indicted Nathaniel Brown on a misdemeanor assault count Wednesday.

The nine-year Baytown police veteran is accused of using his knee to hit 24-year-old Skylar Gilmore, who along with another man had witnessed a June traffic stop Brown made.

The two men were arrested but prosecutors later dropped the charges.
