GREEN BAY – We should learn next week what a state review has to say about a controversial arrest involving a Green Bay police officer.

Green Bay police say they will release the state Department of Justice’s review of allegations against Officer Derek Wicklund next week. He’s being investigated for possible excessive force.

Cellphone video from April shows Wicklund pushing a suspect against a squad car, then taking him to the ground.

The state examined whether the tactics are consistent with training.

The report is expected to be released either Tuesday or Wednesday.
