DALLAS — Dallas police supervisors have placed two officers on restricted duty while they investigate allegations that the officers beat a man in front of his Rylie home early Wednesday morning.

Fletcher Clayton Morrison, 49, said in an interview that he had been drinking and driving before he pulled up to his home in the 14700 block of Lasater Road near Interstate 20 about 1:30 a.m. Morrison, a felon, said the officers — who were in plain clothes — pulled him out of his vehicle, threw him on the ground and kicked him in his face.
