CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- Two former officers of the Chattanooga Police Department are before an administrative law judge, trying to get their jobs back.
Sean Emmer and Adam Cooley were fired by Police Chief Bobby Dodd, who said they used excessive force in subduing an inmate, who was seriously injured.
The Chattanooga Times Free Press reported Emmer and Cooley will appear on Wednesday and Thursday before Kim Summers of Nashville, who is with the Secretary of State's office.
They were fired after a June 2012 incident in which Adam Tatum was beaten as they tried to subdue him at a halfway house. He resisted arrest and was shocked with a stun device and then struck by the officers, resulting in six fractures of his right leg and two fractures of his left leg.
