WASHINGTON PARK, IL -

A Washington Park police officer is under investigation for allegedly using excessive force on a suspect.

A police report obtained by News 4 states an officer used a taser on a suspect who was handcuffed and already in police custody. 

News 4 reached out to the victim's family for comment, but they declined, saying they recently hired an attorney who encouraged them not to speak publicly. 

Washington Park police also refused to comment.

In a statement Tuesday, the FBI, who is investigating the incident, said "we have been asked to review the matter to see if there is any federal violation.”
