DETROIT (AP) - State police have submitted results of their investigation into the beating by two police offices of a suspected carjacker in Detroit to the Wayne County prosecutor’s office.

Lt. Michael Shaw says in an email that “the role of the Michigan State Police is now concluded in this matter.”

Andrew Jackson was arrested Jan. 12 by officers assigned to a regional auto-theft unit. A video made by a woman and shown by WXYZ-TV (https://bit.ly/1J55P8c) shows Jackson being kicked and beaten by officers from Grosse Pointe Park and Highland Park.

Jackson faces a March 3 hearing to determine whether he’ll go to trial on charges of carjacking, armed robbery and other crimes.

State police investigated the officers’ conduct.

Prosecutors say they’ll conduct an independent investigation to determine whether charges will be filed.
