BRUSLY, La. (AP) - An attorney for a Louisiana teenager slammed to the ground by police during an altercation at school says charges against two officers are a "slap on the wrist."
  
News outlets report a grand jury on Friday indicted former Brusly police Officer Dan Cipriano on a charge of simple battery and another ex-officer, Kip Dupre, on a charge of malfeasance in office.
  
Both officers resigned in November after video from Brusly Middle School showed one of the officers wrestling with a young male student before slamming him down. Another officer later comes in to help handcuff the student and slams him against a desk.
  
Kwame Asante is an attorney representing the student. He says the boy's family feels the charges were insufficient considering the evidence on the video.
