Lansing Detention Officer Staying on Leave Despite Acquittal

By  | 

The Lansing detention officer acquitted of assault this evening won't be going back to work just yet. Interim chief Mike Yankowski tells us David Gladstone will stay on paid administrative leave until an internal affairs investigation is finished.

If the investigation determines Gladstone violated LPD policies and procedures, he could be eligible for punishment ranging from counseling to being fired. Gladstone grabbed 14-year-old Kane Wicks by the neck and slammed him against a wall on March 8th.
