A Gloucester Township police officer was charged with simple assault on Friday after he struck a 13-year-old girl while handcuffing her, according to the Camden County Prosecutor's Office.
John Flinn, 27, and other officers were dispatched to investigate a disturbance on March 8 and encountered the girl. Flinn can be seen hitting the girl twice on the side of her face in footage from a responding officer's body-worn camera. The prosecutor's office said the girl was struck while complying with police instructions.
The girl was taken to a local hospital for evaluation, and no criminal charges were filed against her, according to a release from the prosecutor's office.
Gloucester Township Police Chief Harry Earle suspended Flinn following the incident and notified the Camden County Prosecutor's Office of his alleged misconduct. Flinn has been with the department since 2015 and his salary is $46,767 according to public records.
