HARRISON, Ark. (AP) - A judge has set a new trial date for the Bull Shoals police chief accused of using excessive force against a domestic violence suspect.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (https://bit.ly/1zbDjcO ) reports U.S. District Judge Timothy L. Brooks has set aside three days for Daniel Sutterfield’s trial in federal court in Fayetteville. It will start Aug. 18.

A three-day trial in U.S. District Court in Harrison ended in a mistrial last week when a jury couldn’t reach a unanimous decision on the excessive force accusation.

After almost eight hours, jurors did find Sutterfield innocent of falsifying records and conspiring to falsify records.

Sutterfield is accused of kicking the suspect, throwing him into a fireplace and using a stun gun during the July 2013 arrest.
