Randy Hays, 32, a former police officer with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department (SLMPD) pleaded guilty today in federal court in the Eastern District of Missouri to one count of using unreasonable and excessive force against a fellow SLMPD police officer, who was believed to be a protestor while the officer was working undercover in downtown St. Louis during protests following the 2017 acquittal of a former SLMPD officer on a state murder charge. Hays’ co-defendant Bailey Colletta pled guilty to committing perjury related to this assault on Sept. 6, 2019. Co-defendants and former SLMPD officers Dustin Boone and Christopher Myers remain under indictment on federal charges related to the assault and subsequent cover-up. They have pleaded not guilty.
