A federal grand jury indicted two former Arkansas law enforcement officers on an excessive force charge after they were caught on video punching a man repeatedly during an arrest in August, prosecutors said.

Levi White and Zackary King, former deputies with the Crawford County Sheriff's Department, were indicted on federal civil rights offenses for using excessive force while arresting a 27-year-old man on August 21 last year, the US Department of Justice said Tuesday in a news release.

CNN's Eliott C. McLaughlin, Andy Rose and Hannah Sarisohn contributed to this report.
