Mistrial declared in US cop's assault on Indian grandfather

Washington, Nov 5: For the second time in less than two months, a US judge declared a mistrial in the case against an Alabama police officer charged with slamming an Indian grandfather to the ground last February and severely injuring him.

US District Judge Madeline Hughes Haikala declared a mistrial Wednesday in the case against Madison Police Officer Eric Parker, 27, for assaulting Sureshbhai Patel after the jury told her that it was deadlocked despite 'intense discussions', according to Al.com.

Parker's first criminal trial at the federal courthouse in Huntsville ended Sep 11 with a jury hung 10-2 in favour of acquittal, leading to the retrial.

The retrial began Oct 26. The new jury spent more than three days deliberating after receiving the case on Friday afternoon. But on Wednesday afternoon it told the judge it had reached an impasse.
