IMPD officers Michal Dinnsen and Carlton Howard shot and killed 45-year-old Aaron Bailey on June 29, 2017, after Bailey crashed into a tree during a high-speed car chase.

The shooting left an unarmed man dead and two officers under investigation. A special prosecutor found them innocent, and they received no criminal charges.
