A pair of El Monte police officers won't be facing charges in a pursuit confrontation.The officers were caught on camera hitting and kicking a suspect after a high-speed chase and crash that ended in Pico Rivera in May. The suspect bolted from the car and tried to hide in a backyard, where he was cornered by the officers.

Prosecutors determined that they acted within reason given their knowledge of the suspect and the events leading up to the confrontation.
