Police say on September 22nd, just before 9:30 p.m. Schoen punched a prisoner in the face, removed her from the squad car by her hair, and struck her to the body with his knee while she was handcuffed in the squad after a traffic stop in the 4100 block of N. 51st Blvd.

Police say the woman used profanity and became argumentative, resulting in her arrest.
