Body Cam Video Captures Moment Cop Punches Handcuffed Man in Groin

Video shows the suspect protesting after he is hit and asking officers why he was punched in the genitals.

None of the three patrol officers who witnessed the encounter are under investigation, according to EPD.

Details on the suspension could not be released until the Evansville Police Merit Commission heard Hahn’s case, Cullum said. The Merit Commission has the final say on all matters of police discipline — commissioners can choose to overturn a suspension or other discipline recommended by the department’s chain of command.

The board is made of of three people, one each appointed by the City Council, the mayor and the Fraternal Order of Police.

Cullum said the department chain of command feels Hahn “owned the situation” by talking to the officers present when he hit the suspect, and also addressing roll calls to talk about the encounter.

Hahn joined EPD in February 1989, according to a personnel file obtained by the Courier & Press in a public records request. He previously worked for the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office. Hahn served as assistant police chief under Hill starting in July 2004, according to EPD’s history of the department.

Filming Cops was started in 2010 as a conglomerative blogging service documenting police abuse. The aim isn’t to demonize the natural concept of security provision as such, but to highlight specific cases of State-monopolized police brutality that are otherwise ignored by traditional media outlets.
