NEW YORK (AP) — Six British soldiers have been charged with assault in the beating of an off-duty New York City police officer.
Authorities said Tuesday the charges stem from an argument that broke out about 4:20 a.m. Friday outside a Manhattan bar.
A criminal complaint says that the attackers punched the unarmed police officer until he fell to the ground and that when the officer tried to call 911, one of the men punched him again and took his cellphone.
The complaint says the officer suffered a broken nose and a swollen jaw.
British officials identified the six men as members of the Scots Guard, which is one of five army regiments that guard royal residences.
The names of their defense attorneys were not immediately available.
