Three Hartford police officers were arrested on charges stemming from the videotaped pistol-whipping of a motorist and an alleged cover-up attempt. A camera inside a police cruiser caught 10 seconds of the Feb. 14 beating outside the police station in suburban Bloomfield, which followed a 3-mile chase from adjacent Hartford. The officers said they chased 37-year-old James Wilson because they thought he was a fugitive who had attacked a police officer in a separate incident.
