An eastern Kentucky grand jury has indicted a former Kentucky state police trooper accused of beating and biting a West Virginia National Guardsman.

Jared Alfrey of Belfry, Kentucky, faces a second-degree assault charge. The 28-year-old trooper resigned in July, soon after Randall McCoy accused the trooper of driving him and his girlfriend to an abandoned mine and beating him after arresting the couple on a domestic violence call.

Alfrey says the Williamson, West Virginia, resident grabbed him while he was moving McCoy's handcuffs from behind his back to his front because McCoy said he had a back injury.

Alfrey joined the Kentucky State Police in December 2005.

He could not be reached for comment Friday and it was not immediately known if he had an attorney.
