Two Honolulu police officers arrested Friday are innocent of allegations they forced a man to lick a urinal, a defense attorney said.
Officers John Rabago and Reginald Ramones were charged with depriving a man of his civil rights.
Federal authorities knew about the allegations for more than a year before the officers were indicted, said , Megan Kau, Rabago's defense attorney.
"This is not a complicated case," she said. "This is a case of one man saying that two police officers forced him to a lick a toilet bowl."
