OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Three Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers have been cleared of wrongdoing after the arrest of a hearing-impaired man involved in a hit-and-run accident.
The Oklahoman reports that Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater cleared troopers Eric Foster, Kelton Hayes and Jason Owens.
Prater says statements made by the troopers concerning the arrest of Pearl Pearson Jr. matched Foster's dash cam video and witness statements.
The troopers responded last month to a call from the victim of a hit-and-run accident, and authorities say Pearson was involved in the accident but didn't stop at the scene.
A fight broke out between Pearson and the troopers after they caught up to his vehicle, and Pearson was punched in the face and dragged from his car. Pearson was charged with resisting arrest.
