Minneapolis Officer Reprimanded for Speaking to Press
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A Minneapolis police officer who criticized the department in a magazine article after the death of George Floyd has been reprimanded for speaking to the media without seeking permission.
Disciplinary records made public Friday show Colleen Ryan received a letter of reprimand on Dec. 2. Records show Ryan admitted she was interviewed as an anonymous source in a June 10 article in GQ magazine.
In the article, she described the department as having a "toxic" culture. Her name was released Friday under a court order that's part of an ongoing human rights investigation into the department.
