PORT ALLEN, LA (WAFB) - A former Port Allen Police Officer finds himself on the wrong side of the law Wednesday.

Authorities arrested Jasmione Clark on charges of felony battery and malfeasance in office. Investigators say Clark used excessive force, choking out a driver during a traffic stop last September.

Clark resigned from the force in February.

Clark stands by his actions saying the driver resisted arrest. At last check, Clark is still in jail.
