Former City of Logan police officer indicted for using excessive force


A former City of Logan police officer was arrested Thursday on the east end of Stratton Street.


Forty-four-year-old Everett Lee Maynard was indicted Tuesday by a federal grand jury in Charleston for using excessive force against an arrestee during Maynard’s stint as an officer for the City of Logan Police Department, according to a United States Department of Justice press release.


The indictment charges Maynard with one count of deprivation of rights under color of law. Maynard allegedly used unreasonable force and assaulted an arrestee resulting in bodily injury. The arrestee was identified as R.W.


The count carries a maximum penalty of ten years in prison.
