Chicago cop on duty after Nikkita Brown video

CHICAGO – A Chicago police officer has been assigned administrative duties after videos appear to show him catching a woman walking her dog on a beach screaming and struggling to get free.

Keenan Saulter, the woman’s attorney, Nikkita Brown, said her client was “violently attacked” by the officer just after midnight on Saturday morning. In a statement, Saulter said the officer approached Brown,who is Black, because she was in Lincoln Park after the park closed.

“It was a clear case of racial profiling,” Saulter said.

Saulter said his client intended to file a “formal complaint” with the city.

At a press conference on Monday, Mayor Lori Lightfoot said she was “quite disturbed” by what she saw in the video.
