    Green Bay police investigating officer’s actions

    Cell phone video involving Green Bay police is making the rounds on social media. Now a police lieutenant tells FOX 11 the department is investigating whether one of its officers acted inappropriately. The person who shot the video says it is from an incident after bar close on Friday night in downtown Green Bay, on Washington Street. The person who shot the video gave FOX 11 permission to show it. However, he did not want his name shared. In the video, you can hear a person yelling profanities at an officer. The officer then pins the person on a squad car and then takes him down to the ground. The video has now been shared thousands of times on Facebook.
