They are also charged with willfully failing to discharge duties.

Kyron Hinton, 29, accused the department of assault in April. 

Hinton says he was walking in north Raleigh when he was attacked by the officers, including a K-9 unit.

Hinton was originally charged with resisting a public officer and disorderly conduct. Those charges were dropped last week.
