DES MOINES, Iowa — A mistrial was declared Saturday in the federal trial of a former Des Moines police officer.
The jury couldn’t decide on one count of excessive force against Colin Boone, but the jury did find Boone not guilty of the second count of falsifying records in connection to the case.
Boone is accused of kicking a man in the head while he was being held to the ground by two other officers during a Feburary 2013 traffic incident. The suspect had injuries to his head and face.
Another trial will be scheduled to determine a verdict on the charge of excessive force.
