Recent Bodycam footage shows Denver Police Corporal Michael Oestmann knocking out a handcuffed man after he taunted Oestmann for minutes while sitting in the chair and then spitting at his feet.
Cpl. Michael Oestmann reached a plea deal last week with the Denver District Attorney’s Office that will allow him to wipe his guilty plea to a misdemeanor menacing charge from his record in a year if he follows court orders. He will serve no jail time.
Investigative documents obtained show Oestmann was working off duty at a downtown bar on April 14. Oestmann detained a suspect, identified in court papers as Kevin Watson, involved in an assault inside the bar.
