The Olmstead County Attorney's Office is reviewing the case involving a St. Paul officer that kicked a suspect during an arrest.
The Pioneer Press reports the case was transferred from Ramsey County to Olmsted County to avoid any conflict of interest. A prosecutor will decide whether or not to charge the officers involved.
The video taken by a witness shows Officer Jesse Zilge kick the head of 30-year-old Eric Ronnell Hightower in St. Paul last month.
WARNING: Video includes profanity
Zilge and a second officer involved in the arrest, Matthew Gorans, were placed on paid administrative leave and have returned to non-patrol duties.
Hightower was charged after the controversial arrest and pleaded not guilty to aggravated stalking, terroristic threats and criminal damage to property. Hightower had another run-in with police last Monday after jumping out a window at the Highway Motel in St. Paul.
