Two police officers accused of chasing an autistic man before one of them attacked him have been found guilty of gross misconduct.
Bedfordshire PCs Christopher Thomas and Christopher Pitts were said to have chased Faruk Ali, 33, in 2014.
The officers were cleared of misconduct in a public office following a trial.
But Leicestershire Police found they had a case to answer, and the pair were found to have breached standards of professional conduct.
Mr Thomas was found to have breached four standards following a week-long hearing and Mr Pitts was found to have breached three, both amounting to gross misconduct.
