SUPERIOR, WI (WTAQ) - The state Justice Department will look into allegations that a police officer in Superior used excessive force in making an arrest.
George Gothner was seen on a dashboard camera video punching Natasha Lancour in the face while arresting her outside a lounge on January 5th.
She said she did nothing wrong before Gothner walked up to her and started cursing. The officer said Lancour resisted him, and scratched him in the face.
Lancour is charged with disorderly conduct and battery to an officer.
Superior Police Chief Charles LaGesse said it would be in everyone's best interest if the state oversaw the investigation of the officer's conduct.
