Evansville Police are defending an officer accused in online posts of beating a man this weekend.
Witnesses say the altercation happened at the Sculpt EVV event.
Robert Evidon says he was attacked by Officer Todd Mattingly after being told to shut down a concert at Haynie's Corner. Police, however, say Evidon was drunk and was cussing out Officer Mattingly, and that's what lead to the altercation.
14 News heard from both sides, who are equally adamant about what happened.
