A Green Bay police officer could soon be looking at charges for hitting a suspect with his squad car.
Prosecutors in Brown County are looking at felony misconduct charges, and misdemeanor negligent operation of a vehicle charges against Officer Matthew Knutson. Dash cam video shows Knudson chase down a suspect while still in his car, then use the car to hit the man. It happened back in November of 2021. Knudson has been on paid leave since October of last year when the city’s police chief first learned about the incident. The suspect wasn’t seriously injured and did not file a formal complaint.
