Green Bay Police
Two Minneapolis police officers have been fired after a June incident with Green Bay Police. In June, SWAT officers Brian Thole and Shawn Powell were visiting Green Bay off-duty.
Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau said she’s outraged after seeing the behavior of two of the city’s officers during an incident in Green Bay, Wis. Both have since been placed on administrative leave. An active internal affairs investigation began Friday into the off-duty officers, Brian Thole and Shawn Powell, after an incident that occurred last month.
Video released Monday shows Minneapolis Police Officers Brian Thole and Shawn Powell telling Green Bay Police about a fight with a group of black men in late June – an incident that resulted in both officers being placed on paid administrative leave. When Green Bay Police arrived, dash cam video shows off-duty officers Thole and Powell in the middle of a confrontation – which they continue to pursue even after police try and break it up.
