Child porn found on phone of man who filmed fight with cop


CLINTON, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut police looking at cellphone video taken by a man who said he recorded an officer assaulting him say it actually shows him assaulting the officer. They say he also had child pornography on the phone.

WFSB-TV reports (http://bit.ly/29tkE5V) Clinton police announced Thursday that they’ve charged 19-year-old Austin Haughwout with assault as well as enticing, inducing and/or coercing a minor with a computer, possession of child pornography and other charges.

Police said Haughwout accused an officer of excessive force during his arrest on an unrelated warrant last July. Haughwout recorded the altercation on his cellphone.

But police examining the phone say the video shows Haughwout assaulted the officer. They also found obscene images of children and sexual conversations with kids.

No one answered at a phone number listed for Haughwout.
