2 N.O. officers fired for misconduct, excessive force

By Walt Philbin

NEW ORLEANS — Two New Orleans Police officers have been fired for misconduct and brutality and a supervisor was suspended for 100 days for not taking proper diciplinary action, a department spokesman said late Wednesday night.

Officer Max Johnson, a four-year police veteran, was fired for excessive force and neglect of duty for his role in a mid-February incident, said Sgt. Joe Narcisse. Johnson stopped a person he said was involved in suspicious activity. He used excessive force in confronting the man, police said. The man, who was not arrested, later filed a complaint with the department's Public Integrity Bureau.
