Man involved in police scuffle sentenced

GREEN BAY – A man convicted of resisting arrest in a November incident caught on video was sentenced Friday to 30 days in jail.

NeeGee Cloud was convicted after a jury trial earlier this month. Judge William Atkinson also placed Cloud on probation for 14 months.

In the video, you can see a Green Bay police officer punching Cloud, 21, approximately ten times while trying to arrest him. Police were responding to a call of a person with a gun inside Coaches Corner in downtown Green Bay. Police say they thought Cloud was going for a gun. However, after punching and tasing Cloud, they found he did not have a gun.

A Green Bay Police Department review of the incident found the officers’ acted appropriately.
