Wednesday March 13th, 2013
PHOENIX - A Phoenix Police officer has been suspended after tackling a 15-year-old girl. The video, posted on YouTube, made national headlines two years ago.
Monday, that officer appealed, saying his punishment is too harsh, fighting the 5-day suspension at a hearing.
That hearing is closed to the public at his request, so we won't get to hear why he believes his punishment was too harsh.
