The United States Marshals Service is investigating a scandal involving a member of their task force.
A Ring camera video sent to WLBT shows a suspect in cuffs being hit in the face as he walks out of a Jackson home.
Marshals declined to discuss the details of the incident, but issued the following statement:
The U.S. Marshals Service is aware of an incident that occurred this morning involving members of our multi-agency Gulf Coast Regional Task Force (GCRTF) in Mississippi. We take any allegation of misconduct by our personnel or task force partners seriously and we are currently gathering information regarding the incident.
