Police on steroids:
An emerging problem

PETERSBURG -- Around midnight, Oct. 13, 2003, Petersburg police officers Michael A. Tweedy and David E. House stopped a driver to question him about a hit-and-run incident.

The driver, a meat worker named Lamont Cortez Koonce, ran away but was eventually tackled and doused with pepper spray.

As Koonce was on the ground and House was trying to handcuff him, authorities said, Tweedy accidentally sprayed himself and went into a rage.

According to Koonce's attorney, Tweedy kicked and stomped on Koonce's head repeatedly, walking away and then returning to continue the blows as Koonce lay motionless, gurgling his own blood.
