Kentucky Officer Fined $2 for Striking Handcuffed Man

A Louisville police officer has been fined $2 after being convicted of official misconduct and harassment for striking a handcuffed suspect multiple times.

While the fine was miniscule, Officer David Graham still faces disciplinary charges from the department, according to Fox.

A videotape of John Sanders' arrest shows Graham poking him multiple times in the throat and slapping him, the station reported.

The officer's attorney said he was disappointed the officer was convicted, but "thankful" the jurors fined him the "absolute minimum penalty."

Graham has been on the police force since 1999.
