ST. LOUIS (AP) - A former Velda City police officer faces federal charges of excessive force and lying to FBI agents.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 47-year-old Stan Lee Stanback is accused in a federal indictment of using unreasonable force by hitting and injuring two juveniles and an adult with a police baton on Sept. 17, 2008.

He's also accused of telling federal agents he was surrounded by 15 men in the parking lot of the small St. Louis County town's police station. The FBI says he was actually approached by three juveniles and an adult.

Stanback faces up to 10 years in prison on each of the excessive force charges and five years on the false statements charge.

The newspaper was unable to reach Stanback for comment Thursday.

New twist in alleged case of excessive force

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A disciplinary hearing for a St. Louis police officer has taken a new twist after the accuser was arrested following his testimony.

Jerrmaine Lacy has accused officer Charles Proctor of using excessive force during an arrest in July at Lumiere Place Casino. Lacy says the officer choked him and slammed his head into a squad car bumper.

The department's internal affairs division has recommended the firing of Proctor, a nine-year veteran. The hearing is expected to run through Thursday.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Lacy was arrested on four outstanding warrants of trespassing and failure to appear in court. The arrest was prompted by a letter to police chief Sam Dotson from Proctor's attorney, Chet Pleban.

Dotson says the arrest is separate from the hearing.

The man who's accusing a St. Louis police officer of using excessive force during a July arrest, is again in custody. Thirty-six year old Jerrmaine Lacy was arrested yesterday just after he finished testifying at Officer Charles Proctor's disciplinary hearing.

Chief Sam Dotson acknowledges that a letter from the officer's attorney, Chet Pleban, precipitated Lacy's arrest on four outstanding warrants.

Lacy is accusing Officer Proctor of choking him and slamming his head into a patrol car bumper during a trespassing arrest at Lumiere Place Casino last July. Two of the four-outstanding warrants against Lacy stem from that arrest.

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.
