MONROE, La. — Five Louisiana law enforcement officers were charged with state crimes ranging from negligent homicide to malfeasance Thursday in the deadly 2019 arrest of Ronald Greene, the first charges to emerge from death authorities initially blamed on a car crash before long suppressed body-camera video showed white officers beating, stunning and dragging the Black motorist as he wailed, “I’m scared!”

Following an hour-long deliberation, the 11-person grand jury indicted former Louisiana State Troopers Kory York, Christopher Harpin, John Clary, Dakota Demoss and former Troop F commander John Peters, and former Union Parish sheriff deputy Christopher Harpin for their involvement in Greene’s arrest that subsequently led to his death, and the cover-up of his death.

The men were charged with the following:

  • Kory York − One count of negligent homicide and 10 counts of malfeasance in office.
  • Christopher Harpin − Six counts of malfeasance in office.
  • John Clary − One count of malfeasance in office and one count of obstruction of justice.
  • Dakota Demoss − One count of obstruction of justice.
  • John Peters − One count of obstruction of justice.
