Nev. chief retires in wake of diabetic man's case

The Henderson Police Chief announced her retirement Thursday after a $292,000 settlement over a traffic stop altercation

By PoliceOne Staff

HENDERSON, Nev. — The Henderson Police Chief announced her retirement Thursday in the wake of a case involving a diabetic man's treatment during a traffic stop.

Nevada Highway Patrol troopers pulled over Adam Greene in 2010 for erratic driving. Dash cam video shows police physically confront Greene, who appears not to comply. It was later discovered he had gone into diabetic shock and was not drunk, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The video's release prompted City Manager Mark Calhoun to ask Chief Jutta Chambers to step down, KTNV reported. The department's first female officer, Chambers was a police veteran of nearly 30 years. Deputy Police Chief James White was named acting chief, effective March 1.

Greene's family accepted a $292,000 settlement on Feb. 7.
