NY cop attack: UK soldiers charged
Six British soldiers have been charged with assault over the beating of an off-duty New York City police officer.
Authorities said the charges stem from an argument that broke out at about 4.20am local time on 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 mobile phone.
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.
