Officer accused of excessive force reinstated

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- A Des Moines police officer fired after being accused of using excessive force during a traffic stop has been voted to be reinstated.  The Des Moines Civil Service Commission took the action to reinstate Officer Mersed Dautovic, who was fired in 2009 after police administrators testified he hit a man with batons more than a dozen times during a traffic stop.  The department plans to appeal Tuesday's ruling.
