Embattled Officer To Fight For Job After Excessive Force Incident

A Providence police captain is fighting the department's attempt to fire him for allegedly using excessive force.

Stephen Gencarella was videoed slamming a suspect's head to the ground during an arrest over the Fourth of July weekend.

Gencarella plans to challenge the administrative charges against him through a Law Enforcement Officers' Bill of Rights hearing.

It is unclear when that hearing will be scheduled.
