Minneapolis officer fired for 2016 beating of handcuffed man; partner also faces termination


February 19, 2019

A Minneapolis police officer has been fired from the department two years after he and his partner were caught on camera beating a handcuffed American Indian man, while the other officer involved is fighting to keep his job.

Last week, police Chief Medaria Arradondo terminated officer Alexander Brown who, along with his former partner Peter Brazeau, was cleared of criminal wrongdoing in the December 2016 incident. Arradondo has also tried to fire Brazeau, but due to the officer's military veteran status, he is entitled to a hearing before any dismissal action is taken.
