Four police indicted for beating Naples men (ANSA) - Naples, February 5 - Four Naples police were sent to trial Wednesday for allegedly beating two young men and trumping up charges of drug possession last June.

The four members of the motorbike 'hawk' squad allegedly chased the scooter-riding pair after seeing them dump a bag they thought contained drugs.

They took them to a police station where they questioned them for hours and allegedly beat them before filing a false report that they had found drugs.

The trial starts March 25.
