Enoch Clark, 38, is on trial on four felony counts of assault by a police officer and causing great bodily injury.
Clark attempted to arrest Monique Hernandez, 34, Feb. 21, 2012, on suspicion of drunken driving as she was pulling away from her Beaumont home. After she resisted Clarkâ€™s attempts to handcuff her, Clark used his department-issued JPX gunpowder-propelled pepper spray weapon and fired it less than a foot away from her face.
The blast of pepper spray gel sliced her right eye in half, fractured her right orbital bone and severed the optic nerve in her left eye.
More at the link. At least in this case he’s being prosecuted. That doesn’t happen often with bad cops (and almost never, here in Vermont).
