Five St. Paul police officers fired for failing to intervene in assault by ex-cop


Randy Furst – Star Tribune

St. Paul Police Chief Todd Axtell announced the firing of five police officers for failing to intervene in an assault last year.

Five St. Paul police officers who stood by as an ex-cop assaulted a civilian last year were fired Thursday in what Chief Todd Axtell called an "ugly day in our department's history."

Axtell declined to go into specifics about the attack, but a source familiar with the case told the Star Tribune it involved former officer Tou Cha, who faces felony assault charges in Ramsey County for the accusation of beating another man with a baton at an East Side bar last summer.
