Commission wont discipline Kenosha officer
KENOSHA, Wis. — The Kenosha Police and Fire Commission has cleared an officer accused of violating use-of-force rules when using a stun gun during an altercation last year.
A police report says Officer Brian Ruha responded to a call about six men who were about to fight. Ruha used his Taser within 15 seconds of approaching the men. An attorney for one of the suspects requested video of the incident and called the officer's action inappropriate.
Police Chief John Morrissey told the commission Ruha's use of force was within the department's guidelines. The Kenosha News says the commission unanimously accepted the chief's recommendation against discipline Tuesday.
