St. Louis officer pleads guilty to covering up attack

Sponsored by:

ST. LOUIS — A St. Louis police officer has pleaded guilty to a federal crime for covering up an attack on an undercover officer during a 2017 protest.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Bailey Colletta entered the plea Friday, admitting that she lied to the FBI and a federal grand jury investigating the attack on Officer Luther Hall.

Colletta was among four officers charged in the case . The trial for the other three — Dustin Boone, Randy Hays and Christopher Myers — begins Dec. 2.

Court documents say Hall claimed he was beaten “like Rodney King” when fellow officers mistook him for a protester. The attack happened during a protest following the acquittal of Jason Stockley, a former St. Louis officer who had been accused of fatally shooting a black suspect.
