GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - More details are being released regarding an incident WTAQ first reported on Friday night concerning the conduct of two off-duty Minneapolis police officers.
The two officers, both white and one a former Green Bay cop, allegedly threw the first punch during an altercation involving a group of black men.
The two officers used racial slurs to describe what happened and expected preferential treatment from Green Bay police.
The off-duty cops also called the Green Bay Police a, “clown show” and that Green Bay was, “too [racial slur] friendly.”
Both Minnesota officers are on paid leave until an investigation by the Minneapolis Police Department is complete.
Green Bay Police officials are not commenting on the situation that occurred June 29th.
Minneapolis Police Chief Janeé Harteau is apologizing to the public and the Green Bay Police Department for what she has seen about the officers' behavior.
Chief Harteau posted a message on Facebook Tuesday.
“What I saw and heard on the video posted on several news websites involving these two officers is appalling and goes against everything we stand for. The type of behavior exhibited on the public video significantly damages public trust. Every member of this department and community deserves better. I would also like to extend my apologies to the community and the Green Bay Police Department. I am not able to comment further at this time because of data privacy laws.”
