Brown’s indictment comes as the federal prosecutors on the case are scrutinizing other troopers who punched, stunned and dragged another Black motorist, Ronald Greene, before he died in their custody on a rural roadside. The probe of Greene’s 2019 death has grown to examine whether police brass obstructed justice to protect the troopers who beat the Black motorist after a high-speed chase.

The indictment charges Brown with a single count of deprivation of rights under color of law.

An arrestee known as A.B. says that he was “repeatedly struck in the head” bThe modified flashlight with a metal tactical cap that is designed for breaking glass is considered a deadly weopon.

Jacob Brown faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of up to $250,000.  The FBI, Assistant U.S. Attorney Luke Walker for the Western District of Louisiana, and Trial Attorney Katherine G. DeVar of the Civil Rights Division are prosecuting the case. Investigations are ongoing. (Civil Rights Division, Civil Rights – Criminal Section, Press Release Number: 21-919)
