Cleveland Police Suspend 63 Officers Over Deadly Chase
Cleveland’s police chief says 63 officers have been suspended for breaking rules during a deadly chase last November.
Chief Michael McGrath says the suspensions announced Tuesday are the result of disciplinary hearings. The officers were involved in the 23-minute chase that wove through a neighborhood before ending in gunfire. Officers fired 137 shots, and the fleeing driver and passenger were killed.
McGrath says the longest suspension handed down was 10 days. One officer who broke rules during the chase was disciplined but not suspended.
The hearings didn’t include officers involved in the shooting. Those will come after prosecutors finish reviewing what happened.
Police have already announced punishments for 12 supervisors stemming from the chase. One sergeant was fired. A captain and lieutenant were demoted, and nine sergeants were suspended.
