Two fired Dallas police officers accused of holding country music singer Steve Holy and a friend at gunpoint during a game of foosball have been indicted by a grand jury. Randy Anderson and Paul Loughridge, who face up to 20 years in prison if convicted, were allegedly drinking at the Holy's home in December when the singer said an argument began about his identity.

Known for his 2006 hit "Brand New Girlfriend," Holy told police the officers eventually pointed their guns at he and a friend and ordered them on the ground. The four men had gone to the house after meeting at a bar.

Anderson, 26, and Loughridge, 48, were both indicted on one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Anderson was also indicted on one count of kidnapping.

Although he declined to discuss specifics, Loughridge said he believed he would be exonerated. Anderson could not be reached for comment.

"I've had faith all along in the criminal justice system, and that faith continues," Loughridge said.

Anderson and Loughridge, who both joined the department in 2005, were fired in January.
