A former Perry police officer has pleaded guilty to an assault that happened when he was on the force.

Rick Kuhn was accused of assaulting Clinton Richard during an arrest in December, 2013.

“I had a broken knuckle here from where he twisted my hand.  I had my elbow pulled out of the socket,” Richard told Channel 13 in February.

Kuhn resigned from the police force on January 31st.

When we asked the former officer last month if he beat up Clinton Richard, Kuhn replied, “no, no, absolutely not.”

The DCI used video tape of the alleged incident as part of their investigations.

Criminal charges were filed on Tuesday. Kuhn entered a guilty plea in court Thursday.
