GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- A video in which a Green Bay police officer subdues a man aggressively outside a bar over the weekend has sparked an internal investigation after the video was posted online.
A Press-Gazette Media report says there hasn't been a formal complaint filed but police are investigating because of numerous emails and Facebook comments from people concerned about the actions.
The video shows officers arresting someone, allegedly for leaving a bar with an open intoxicant. Others ask why he's being arrested, and profanities are audible.
Then Officer Derrick Wicklund rushes one man, pushes him against a car and punches him on the ground.
Police Capt. Bill Galvin says investigators will look at everything that happened before, during and after the incident. He says the investigation will be transparent.
