Officer fired over video is reinstated
COLUMBUS — Firing was too severe a punishment for an Ohio police officer who subdued a restrained suspect in a way that appeared to show him kicking the suspect in the head, an arbitrator said Monday in a ruling that reinstated the officer.
The decision nonetheless criticized Columbus officer Zachary Rosen for using an “untrained technique” that was too severe for the situation. The ruling reduced the discipline against Rosen to the equivalent of a three-day suspension without pay, the original punishment recommended by the department police chief before the city safety director overruled her.
