An Indianapolis police officer that punched a 17-year-old outside an Indianapolis high school last month now faces criminal charges.
Indianapolis Police Chief Bryan Roach says it was not “reasonable” for one of his officers to punch a teenager in the face during a confrontation outside a school captured in a video posted on social media. Roach said in a statement Saturday, “The video shows a clear image of a closed fist punch to the face, a technique which is not taught or reasonable given the facts known to us at this time.”

Indianapolis Public Schools paid about $600,000 to settle two lawsuits in a case involving a former school counselor who was accused of having sex with students.
The Indianapolis school district has reached confidential settlements in lawsuits related to a former counselor accused of having sex with two teenage students. The Indianapolis Star reports the settlements are with a student and two former employees.
More than 50 cases were denied transfer last week, but Indiana Supreme Court justices agreed to hear arguments in two cases involving a teen’s murder and a reversed denial to terminate a mother’s parental rights.
