Agents Cleared of Wrongdoing in Martese Johnson Case

Martese Johnson Case: Agents in Bloody Arrest of UVA Student Cleared of Wrongdoing

Three Virginia liquor agents who were caught on camera violently arresting a university student have been cleared of wrongdoing and returned to work Monday, the state said. Images and video footage showing University of Virginia student Martese Johnson, 20, bloodied and pinned to the ground by a Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Department officer in March sparked protests and outrage.

An independent report by the Virginia State Police, ordered by Gov. Terry McAuliffe and later reviewed by the ABC, found the agents "did not violate agency policy and returned these special agents to active duty today," the liquor department said in a statement Monday.
