Two police officers in Hawaii could face up to 11 years in prison after they allegedly made a homeless man lick a urinal at a public toilet.
According NBC News, both officers who have been suspended from their duties have been charged with civil rights offences following the incident which occurred in Honolulu in 2018.
The case which has since been transferred to the FBI came to light after a fellow officer from the Honolulu Police Department reported the incident.
It is reported that the three officers responded to a trespassing case where they found the homeless man, before the two accused men made him lick the urinal at a public toilet.
NBC News say both men have been charged with one count of conspiring to deprive a person of his civil rights and one count of acting under color of law to deprive the same individual of his civil rights.
If convicted both men could potentially face up to 11 years in prison and a $350,000 fine.
