The University of Cincinnati Police announced on Thursday that the two officers were suspended with pay following the release of their body camera footage that documented the incident.
In the footage, Kidd can be heard saying that he saw Tensing being dragged by the vehicle, though he did not make that claim in his official testimony.
Lindenschmidt can also he heard corroborating the story that Tensing had told, claiming that he had acted in self defense. This third officer on the scene also did not repeat this story in his official testimony.
Prosecutors have slammed that version of events, as the body camera footage very clearly determined that version of the story to be a lie.
"It is our belief that he was not dragged," County Prosecutor Joseph Deters told reporters. "If you slow down this tape you see what happens, it is a very short period of time from when the car starts rolling to when a gun is out and he's shot in the head."
Tensing had claimed that he was dragged by the vehicle, prompting him to shoot, but footage showed that he attempted to open Dubose’s car door, then almost instantly shoots the motorist in the head. The vehicle did not begin to move until after Dubose was shot.
"I fully agree with the decision of the Hamilton County Grand Jury" not to press charges on Kidd and Lindenschmidt, Deters stated in a press release Friday.
"These officers were totally cooperative in the investigation and consistent in their statements. There was some confusion over the way the initial incident report was drafted, but that was not a sworn statement by the officers and merely a short summary of information. When the officers were specifically asked about what they saw and heard, their statements matched Tensing's body camera video. These officers have been truthful and honest about what happened and no charges are warranted."
On Wednesday, a grand jury indicted Tensing for murder. The former officer turned himself in and spent the evening in jail before his father paid over $100,000 of a one million dollar bail to have Tensing released.
Deters has stated that the killing of Dubose was senseless, and "the most asinine act I've ever seen a police officer make."
