Off-Duty DC Police Officers Indicted In Assault

As well all like going to a club, bar or strip club this is a message to beware as you my find yourself faced with this type of incident.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Four District of Columbia police officers have been indicted by a grand jury in connection with an assault near a nightclub in downtown Washington.

The charges Wednesday stem from a fight that broke out in the early morning hours of June 10, 2011 outside the Lotus Lounge. Investigators reviewing video of the incident later recognized that several off-duty police officers were involved in the fight while working as bouncers at the club.

Authorities say two of the officers, Kenneth McRavin and Thaddeus Modlin, repeatedly kicked and beat a man outside the club. Another officer, Keith Goins, is accused of not intervening. A fourth officer, Yolanda Lampkin, is charged with lying to a grand jury investigating the assault.

It was not immediately clear if the four officers had attorneys.
