The policeman with a history of controversy who attacked NC State assistant basketball coach Larry Harris during a traffic stop in April will not face criminal charges but could still face disciplinary action, the N&O reported.
A Raleigh police officer who pepper-sprayed an N.C. State University coach during a traffic stop will not be charged criminally.
The decision not to charge Officer Robert W. King was made this week by Colon Willoughby, Wake district attorney, after his staff reviewed an internal investigation conducted by the Raleigh Police Department.
“We did not find any reason to warrant prosecution,” Willoughby said Friday. A Wake County magistrate also looked at the case and decided there were no criminal charges, Willoughby said.
Although King was cleared of criminal wrongdoing, it is unclear whether the internal investigation will continue into whether he broke departmental rules. If a violation of department rules is found, King could face disciplinary action.
