GREEN BAY - FOX 11 is On Special Assignment looking into an incident that happened in Green Bay last month involving two-off duty Minneapolis police officers.
According to a police report released Monday afternoon, the off-duty Minneapolis officers are accused of using a racial slur and they also showed some disdain for the Minneapolis police chief, who is an openly gay woman.
We do want to warn you that some of the language used in the report is harsh and includes obscenities.
The incident happened back on June 29 near the intersection of South Washington and Doty Streets.
According to a police report, when Green Bay officers arrived at the scene, the two white, off-duty Minneapolis officers were arguing with two African-American men.
The off-duty officers, one of whom is a former Green Bay officer, claimed they had "...walked past a group of 9 black males" and "...some words were exchanged..."
One of the Minneapolis officers said "...one of the males 'came at him'..." and Green Bay police say the Minneapolis officer admitted to throwing the first blow saying, "I punched him in the face."
According to the police report, a Green Bay officer on the scene heard one of the Minneapolis officers say "... a sentence with the (N-word) in it."
When he was later "...confronted with using the 'N' word during the disturbance. (One of the Minneapolis officers) stated it was freedom of speech."
Green Bay police noted the men "...expected preferential treatment because they are Police Officers" and they were "...adamant about not having their names placed in any police report..." and at one point said, "you know who we are right?"
According to the report, one of the Minneapolis officers told Green Bay police "...we have a lesbian (expletive) chief that's looking to fire people for any reason."
More than an hour later, the two off-duty Minneapolis officers showed up at the Green Bay Police Department to complain about the way the Green Bay officers handled the situation.
In the report, one Green Bay officer noted "the strong odor of an intoxicating beverage on (of the Minneapolis officer's) breath."
One Minneapolis officer said insisted they were the victims, saying "...you let the (expletives) go and you are harassing us..." He also said "...that he was acting in self defense even though he admitted to throwing the first punch."
No one was arrested in incident, but Green Bay police did forward the case to the Minneapolis Police Department which is investigating the officer's behavior.
Minneapolis police would not confirm any details of the investigation.
In a statement, a spokesperson would only say that two officers are on administrative leave. The department would not say for what.
The names of the officers and other witnesses were blacked out in the Green Bay police report that was released on Monday.
Green Bay police refused to comment about the incident on camera.
