TEXAS — A Texas grand jury declined to indict two former Jasper police officers who were caught on video assaulting a woman inside the police station last year.

The Beaumont Enterprise reports white officers Ricky Grissom and Ryan Cunningham will not face criminal charges for the May 5, 2013, incident in which they were recorded slamming a black woman’s head into a desk and dragging her across the floor.

Overhead surveillance cameras recorded the violent assault of Keyarika Diggles.

The case became a centerpiece of the ongoing racial tension in the Texas town, according to The Texas Observer

Among the troubling aspects of the case was that the officers arrested Diggles for little more than unpaid parking tickets the day of the assault.

Diggles had reportedly been paying down her debt to the city and owed only about $100 the day the officers showed up at her door to arrest her.

The video of the incident clearly shows the two officers violently manhandling Diggles before they dragged the handcuffed woman to a so-called detox cell.

Her attorneys said she spent hours in the dark cell before she was eventually strip-searched by a female officer.
