A disciplinary hearing is underway this week to determine if a St. Louis police suspended for allegedly assaulting a suspect should lose his job or be reinstated.

The incident happened at the Lumiere Place Casino last July. Officer Charles Proctor is accused of using excessive force while arresting trespassing suspect Jermaine Lacy.

Police department lawyer, Jessica Liss is arguing that Proctor used excessive force, racial slurs and obscenities during the arrest.

Proctor's lawyer, Chet Pleban, says Lacy faked his injuries and just wants to profit from a police brutality lawsuit he has filed.

Lacy is expected to testify Tuesday.
