BRADFORD, Pa. (AP) - The state attorney general’s office is now investigating a formal complaint by a man who says two northwestern Pennsylvania police officers wrongly roughed up his deaf grandson at a traffic stop.

Don Cummins, of Bradford Township, and Bradford city police Chief Chris Lucco both tell The Bradford Era (https://bit.ly/1FPP3Hm ) that the AG’s office is investigating.

The complaint alleges that two Bradford officers slammed 23-year-old Brister Campbell so hard against their cruiser that his implanted hearing aid flew off into the street.

Lucco says he investigated and found “no indication of misconduct, wrongdoing or excessive force” during the April 1 encounter.

The officers pulled over Campbell for briefly driving without headlights. The complaint says Campbell was also denied a phone call while in custody and held in a cell for more than two hours.
