ST. LOUIS • Suspended St. Louis Patrolman Charles Proctor disgraced the department and should be fired for striking a man with a baton, choking him and slamming his head into the bumper of a squad car outside the Lumière Place Casino last summer, a police department lawyer said Monday.
The lawyer, Jessica Liss, made the argument against Proctor on the first day of a disciplinary trial to decide if the officer should be reinstated.
Liss says Proctor used excessive force, racial slurs and obscenities while arresting handcuffed trespassing suspect Jermaine Lacy at the downtown casino in July.
