WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington Police are still waiting on the results of an internal review into an officer under investigation for use of force involving a police dog.
Jan. 7 Chief Ralph Evangelous said he hoped to have the results of the probe of Stafford Brister within the next 10 days. Ten days later, WPD spokeswoman Linda Rawley said it should be done some time in the next week or two.
Brister is under investigation for whether he used excessive force when using a police dog against Johnnie Lee Williams in November.
Evangelous said the Internal Affairs Division is done with its investigation, and they’re now just reviewing the evidence.
A grand jury declined to indict Brister last month.
