The Hennepin County Attorney’s Office and a special prosecutor investigated the case and declined to charge Kinsey. But the 10-year department veteran was fired after an internal investigation.

The police Jay Henthorne says that the city has a weight of remedies.

Sean Gormley, executive director of the Law Enforcement Labor Services, the union representing Kinsey, says that he is happy with the arbitrator and that the incident ” shows the pitfalls of hasty conclusions on the basis of the partial video and audio recordings.”

In the mobile phone video on Twitter, an officer tells a 19-year-old to Adams Hill Park. The teenager says the officer pushed and punched him.
