Bayonne Police Officer Charged With Filing False Report Related To Use Of Excessive Force During Arrest 05/15/2017 12:00 AM EDT Francis Styles, 36, of Bayonne, is charged by indictment with one count of falsifying records in a federal investigation and one count of misprision of a felony for his role in attempting to conceal actions taken by former Bayonne police officer Domenico Lillo during an arrest in which Styles, Lillo and others participated. Styles’ arraignment is pending.
According to the indictment:
In the late afternoon of Dec. 27, 2013, Styles, Lillo and another Bayonne police officer went to an address in Bayonne to execute a Sussex County arrest warrant. After the individual was handcuffed and no longer physically resisting arrest, Lillo struck the individual with a flashlight, which resulted in bodily injury requiring hospital treatment.
However, the incident report filed by Styles omitted that Lillo struck the individual in the face with the flashlight, falsely asserted that the individual continued to violently struggle as he was being led to the patrol vehicle, and falsely asserted that the individual sustained injuries as a result of hitting the wall and the ground.
