Harrington Police Department says they’re bringing in outside investigators to look into what exactly happened at the Harrington Casino last weekend. They say they are aware of the incident, where an officer was captured on film punching a man in the face while a K9 unit bit his lower legs. Police say they have contacted an independent agency and the Wilmington Police Department to conduct an internal affairs investigation. Many have cried foul accusing the department of excessive force. In an earlier statement, Harrington Police said the suspect resisted arrest when officers tried to detain him.
