Former Baton Rouge Police Officer Marshall McDermitt will not be reinstated to the force after being caught on camera bloodying an LSU student outside of a Tigerland bar.

The Baton Rouge Municipal Fire and Police Civil Service Board ruled unanimously Monday to uphold a firing decision made by Baton Rouge Police Chief Murphy Paul in the aftermath of the incident.

According to reports, bystanders captured video of McDermitt hitting LSU student Mark Patterson multiple times in a matter of seconds during the arrest in Tigerland in April 2019.

Patterson's injuries included a deviated septum along with teeth repair.
