(Hennepin County, MN) — The manslaughter trial of former Brooklyn Center police officer Kimberly Potter is continuing. A use-of-force expert testified yesterday that it was unreasonable for Potter to use Taser, and especially a handgun, when trying to arrest a resisting Daunte Wright during an April traffic stop. University of South Caroline School of Law Associate Professor Seth Stoughton testified that Potter could have let Wright drive off instead of deploying force because his identity was known and he was unlikely to avoid arrest later. Stoughton agreed with Potter’s claim she mistook her handgun for her Taser when she shot and killed Wright.
