Evansville Police Chief Billy Bolin is recommending one of his officers be suspended without pay for 21-days, and that the Police Merit Commission consider dismissing the officer.
Although the name of the officer is not being released, 14 News reported on the incident that lead to Thursday afternoon's decision.
On May 17, a complaint was filed against the unnamed officer for committing battery against a student while working off duty at an EVSC School.
The student's mother didn't want to press charged so no criminal charges were filed, but she did file a complaint with internal affairs. It's the result of their investigation that lead to the chief's recommendations.
The Police Merit Commission meets again in June.
