Memphis DA Does Not Rule Out Filing Charges Against Others at Scene Over Tyre Nichols Beating and Death

In an interview with CNN Newsroom Sunday, the district attorney who brought multiple charges against five former Memphis, Tennessee police officers for the fatal beating of Tyre Nichols would not rule out bringing additional charges against others who were at the scene. Nichols was pulled over by officers with the Memphis Police Department on Jan. 7. Video from the police body cams and surveillance cameras showed Nichols being brutally beaten, tased, pepper-sprayed, struck by batons, punched, and kicked by the officers. Nichols died from his injuries on Jan. 10. The officers were fired shortly thereafter.
