Kelly Thomas to Be Cleared of Wrongdoing

Father says Fullerton will make announcement Tuesday


Fullerton city officials are expected on Tuesday to clear Kelly Thomas of wrongdoing, his father said.

Thomas is the homeless man who died after being beaten by police in July 5, 2011.

Kelly Thomas' father, Ron, said he has been trying to clear his son's name for 14 months. He said police wrongfully accused his son of committing crimes and suggested he was resisting arrest before the videotaped beating at a Fullerton bus station.
