INDIANAPOLIS — An Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officer has been charged with battery and false reporting in connection with the physical altercation involving a 17-year-old Shortridge High School student earlier this month that was caught on video.

The Marion County Prosecutor announced Monday that IMPD Officer Robert Lawson is charged with Battery for allegedly striking the student “without a legitimate concern for self-defense.” Officer Lawson is also facing addition charges of obstruction of justice, perjury, false informing and official misconduct in connection with “alleged false statements” made while reporting the incident in official documentation.
