2 NJ officers charged in attack, filing false report

PATERSON, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say two Paterson police officers late last year attacked a person, hitting him in the face and body, and then falsely filed a report saying the person punched one of them in the chest and was “screaming profanities” at them.  Acting U.S. Attorney Rachael Honig said Tuesday in a statement that Officers Kevin Patino and Kendry Tineo-Restituyo have been charged with depriving a victim of his constitutional right to be free from the use of unreasonable force by police and with filing a false police report, according to the statement. Patino pleaded not guilty. A message seeking comment was left with the other officer's attorney.
