Trooper accused of kicking handcuffed man in head

Trooper John Neal, 55, was on assignment in New Orleans Feb. 11 when he spotted a reported stolen auto at Almonaster Boulevard and Louisa Street in Gentilly, according to a news release sent by spokeswoman Trooper Melissa Matey. Neal spotted the vehicle on Almonaster Boulevard near Louisa Street, and confronted the people in the vehicle. One of the people, a 19-year-old man, ran from the vehicle but was caught shortly after by other troopers in the area. He was detained shortly after by other troopers in the area.

Investigators said Neal approached the victim, who was handcuffed behind his back and lying face down on the ground, "offering no resistance". That's when, detectives said, Neal kicked the man in the head.


A Louisiana State Police trooper is accused of kicking a suspect in the head and forcing the suspect's head into a rear window, causing the window to shatter, officials said.

Investigators said they found no evidence that would justify Neal's use of force on the suspect. This action was captured by civilian surveillance video and body camera videos from Neal and another Trooper present at the scene. Neal transported the victim to University Medical Center where he was treated for minor injuries. Neal was arrested on the charge of simple battery, but remains on forced leaving as the investigation continues. He was then booked into the Orleans Justice Center jail on possession of a stolen automobile, resisting an officer and littering. He is on leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
