GBPD: Wicklund not cleared

GREEN BAY – The Green Bay Police Department says one of its officers still hasn’t been cleared in an investigation into a controversial arrest.

Officer Derek Wicklund was seen in cellphone video taking down a man on Washington St. in April. The video went viral online.

The Green Bay Press-Gazette, citing an unnamed source, says the department’s review cleared Wicklund. However, the Wisconsin Department of Justice is still reviewing the report.

The police department says it will not say whether Officer Wicklund acted appropriately until the state review is complete.
