A Milwaukee police officer fired for punching a female suspect will get his job back.
Officer Richard Schoen was let go after this dashcam video surfaced of him punching a handcuffed woman he arrested in May.
The Milwaukee police chief said it was clear Schoen had lost control and was using excessive force.
Schoen appealed, saying he punched the woman because he was afraid she would bite or spit on him.
Monday, the Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission overturned the firing.
Schoen said he's learned his lesson.
"I learned that I gotta fall back on my training, I gotta be more professional. I still feel like it was somewhat justified, but that's up for other people to decide."
The Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission gave Schoen a 60-day unpaid suspension.
