A former Minneapolis police officer fired for decorating a precinct Christmas tree with racially-insensitive items in 2018 is back on the job.
A spokesman confirms Mark Bohnsack is back with the Minneapolis PD after an arbitrator ruled he was wrongly terminated. It's not clear whether or not he will receive back pay.
On Twitter, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey says it was wrong to overturn Chief Arradondo's decision to fire Bohnsack. Frey says there needs to be arbitration reform that tackles an arbitrator’s authority to reinstate in cases of established, egregious misconduct.
