Bobby Seeks Justice for Man Brutally Beaten by Arkansas Cops

Bobby DiCello is representing Randal Worcester, a homeless Native American man who was brutally beaten by police officers in a brazen display of excessive force during an arrest.

On August 21, 2022, Randal Worcester stopped at a convenience store in Mulberry, Arkansas, while on a bicycle trip to South Carolina. When the clerk declined to give him a drink of water, he used profanity before leaving the store. The clerk called police, claiming that Worcester had threatened them. Two sheriff’s deputies and a local police officer subdued Worcester outside of the convenience store, pinned him to the ground, and proceeded to repeatedly punch and knee Worcester in his head and torso. A bystander captured the beating on video, which also shows one of the officers grabbing Worcester by the hair and slamming his skull into the pavement.

Shocked by this violent arrest, Bobby took action to help Worcester exercise his right to challenge the officers who attacked and injured him. On Worcester’s behalf, Bobby has brought a federal civil rights suit against the two sheriff’s deputies for their use of excessive force during the arrest.

The officers have been criminally indicted by a federal grand jury and are currently awaiting trial, which is expected to begin in 2024. Worcester’s civil rights case against the officers remains pending in federal court.
