Former officer pleads guilty to excessive force at hospital

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) —  A former police officer at a Florida veteran’s hospital has pleaded guilty to using excessive force and lying in reports to cover up the incident. Court records say 56-year-old Norman Nicholson pleaded guilty in Tampa federal court Tuesday to charges of making false records in a federal investigation and depriving an individual of their rights under color of law. A plea agreement says Nicholson was working for the Bay Pines Veterans Affairs Healthcare System near St. Petersburg when he used excessive and unreasonable force during the arrest of a U.S. Army veteran. Investigators say Nicholson then authored two false arrest affidavits and a police report.
