Entry Description

Huntington, IN—The Indiana State Police arrested a former Huntington County Confinement Officer following a two month long investigation stemming from allegations of excessive use of force against a handcuffed prisoner.

According to Detective Kent Havens, on April 17th of this year, a male prisoner in the Huntington County Jail was handcuffed, placed into a holding cell for disciplinary reasons and was allegedly battered by a confinement officer.

On April 26th, the Sheriff of Huntington County contacted the Indiana State Police Criminal Investigation Division at the Fort Wayne Post to look into the excessive use of force allegations made against 44 year old Walter C. McCann.  As a result of the investigation, Havens’ report was turned over to the Huntington County Prosecutor’s Office and today, the Huntington County Superior Court issued arrest warrants for McCann on the following charges:

Count 1:  Criminal Recklessness, Class B Misdemeanor
Count 2:  Battery, Class B Misdemeanor

At approximately 12:30 this afternoon, McCann turned himself in to the Indiana State Police at the Huntington County Jail where he was booked in under a $7,000 bond.  He has since posted bond and has been released.
