Neb. officer involved in controversial arrest reinstated

One of six Omaha police officers fired

By Erin Golden

OMAHA, Neb. — One of the six Omaha police officers fired over the controversial arrests of three brothers in north Omaha last year will get his job back.

Officer Bradley D. Canterbury was fired in April, after a video of the arrests near 33rd and Seward Street surfaced on YouTube. He was the officer who appeared to throw suspect Octavious Johnson to the ground, later handcuffing Johnson and striking him several times.

Canterbury appealed his termination to an arbitrator, who issued a decision Wednesday: The officer should be reinstated.
