DALLAS — Dallas police have filed criminal charges against three white officers accused of beating a black suspect in an incident caught on squad car dashboard cameras.

At a news conference Wednesday, Chief David Brown said he has fired one of the officers involved in the Sept. 5 beating of a 28-year-old man. Two others have been suspended and face an internal affairs investigation that could result in their firings.

Another three officers have been placed on desk duty pending the outcome of an internal investigation.

Two of the officers face misdemeanor assault and official oppression charges. All three each face a felony charge of tampering with or fabricating physical evidence.
