Hampshire County Jury Clears Dad

A Northampton man who was  pepper-sprayed by police while protesting on the steps of City Hall last  year is being found not guilty of related charges.  

A Northampton District Court jury cleared Eric Matlock  on charges of disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and assault and  battery on Thursday.  

Matlock was protesting after his child was taken  by the Department of Children and Families, but police said he was  blocking the entrance to City Hall and refused to move.
