Allen heard a string of police officers testify that the attack on Moore was well out of character for Ing and Cruz.
“He’s very even-tempered,” Staff Sgt. Michael Richmond of 51 Division said of Cruz. “He has a very quiet disposition.”
“He’s calm, collected at all times,” Const. Julie Rice of 51 Division said of Ing. “It’s (the beating is) totally out of character.”
Moore suffered fractured ribs, a broken finger, dislocated shoulder, a gash to his scalp and abrasions to his abdomen, hip and shoulder when he was chased to the door of his rooming house and beaten by the officers.
The officers then arrested Moore for being drunk in public, a charge that was later thrown out after medical tests revealed he had no alcohol in his system.
Allen rejected the officers’ testimony that they were trying to protect Moore from wandering out into traffic.
