Denver police find no misconduct in 2009 beating

DENVER (AP) - An administrative review by the Denver Police Department has found insufficient evidence to support allegations of officer misconduct in a 2009 beating.

The department released results of the review Friday.

Alexander Landau says officers pulled him over and he was beaten after questioning their authority to search his vehicle's trunk. He reached a $795,000 settlement with the city in 2011.

Denver and federal prosecutors have declined to file criminal charges in the case. Denver's independent police monitor recommended no discipline for Cpl. Randy Murr and officers Ricky Nixon and Tiffany Middleton, though they've been reprimanded for failing to make complete reports.

The police department did fire Murr and Nixon over separate excessive force cases, but Nixon was reinstated. The city is appealing Murr's reinstatement by a civil service panel.
