Chapel Hill Leaders Clear Officers in Charles Brown Complaint

Posted by on Tue, Sep 29, 2009 at 2:53 PM

Chapel Hill officials found no wrongdoing after investigating a complaint by Charles Brown, the black barber who was confused for another suspect and held by police.

After hearing a closed session report at last night's meeting, the Chapel Hill Town Council released a memorandum today saying that all officers involved should be exonerated.

"This investigation uncovered no evidence to support the claim by Mr. Brown that he was taunted by Chapel Hill Police Officers," it reads. "In all statements provided by officers, there was no indication that any of the officers mistreated Mr. Brown."

The full document, delivered by Chapel Hill Police Chief Brian Curran, may be found here.

Captain Jeff Clark, who completed the internal investigation, recommends that the department place cameras in all of its vehicles and develop a policy of creating written reports after taking anyone into investigative detention.

We'll bring you more details as they develop.
