Former Brooklyn Center police officer Kimberly A. Potter was arrested late Wednesday morning at the offices of the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, the agency said in a statement.

Potter, who resigned from the police department on Tuesday, was booked into Hennepin County jail shortly after noon on a charge of probable cause second-degree manslaughter in the shooting death on Sunday of Daunte Wright, jail records show. The Washington County Attorney’s office was expected to file charges later in the day.

The article goes on to state the following:

A second-degree manslaughter charge carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison or a $20,000 fine or both.

The report states that Potter has retained attorney Earl Gray to represent her in the case.

The Wright family has retained attorney Ben Crump, who declared in a statement, “This was no accident. This was an intentional, deliberate, and unlawful use of force. Driving while Black continues to result in a death sentence. A 26-year veteran of the force knows the difference between a Taser and a firearm.”

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) announced Potter’s arrested in a statement on Twitter:

Agents with the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) this morning arrested a former a Brooklyn Center police officer for the April 11 shooting death of Daunte Wright. Agents took Kim Potter into custody at approximately 11:30 a.m. at the BCA in St. Paul.

After consultation with the Washington County Attorney’s Office, Potter will be booked into the Hennepin County Jail on probable cause 2nd Degree Manslaughter. The Washington County Attorney’s Office will file charges later today.

This remains an active and ongoing investigation. The BCA has been and will continue to work with the Washington County Attorney’s Office as the case progresses.

  1. But yet…….two black girls got off with a slap on the wrist for the premeditated murder of that man!!!!
    DOJ and FBI are as crooked as the day is long!!

  2. I feel sorry for all involved. Prayers for the fami,y of the deceased and prayers for the officer and her family.

  3. She made a mistake and the racist left will make an example out of her. This wasn’t an innocent man she shot. Yes it is sad that she fired the wrong weapon

  4. Bull shit on prayers for that scum bag who resisted arrested and got shot. Too f….ing bad if bastard had done what he was told he’d be in jail waiting trial.

  5. WTF? I would go on strike if I were a cop. There is no way I would go out every day knowing that if i I have to draw my weapon on a black person I may go to jail because of my skin color.

    • This is exactly what I said. Nobody is going to want be an officer if that means they will be charged for protecting themselves. I am sure this women is already having a hard time dealing with the fact that she took someone else’s life. Not everybody is a psychopath and just moves on after taking a life.

  6. Prayers for the officer but not for the criminal. He resisted cuz he knew he’d be in jail but because he’s black you’re making such a big thing of it.

    What about the black cop at the Capitol that shot a white woman he’s not being charged this is b*******

    WHITE LIVES MATTER

  7. Outrageous! Bless this woman…in the wake of trying to save lives, she was arrested!
    This was not intentional and should be justified through a fair trial. May God help her!

  8. I feel sorry for her. She must be terrified. I believe that it was an accident that happened all based on his scumbags prior Behavior.

  9. Had enough yet ?
    It appears that all parties believe only white people die or should die Every politician in Washington believes all whites are to be done away with. Even though some of them are white. Preferably by a black person It didn’t matter in this case or the case of the young white man that Dallas police held a knee on his neck for 13 minutes and killed while they laughed His crime was being a mentally challenged person.
    Two blacks girls murdered a Uber driver and get off. A black illegal from Africa arrested many times Slit the throats of 2 white doctors he broke into their home and killed. He got 6 months for simple robbery. That was in Boston George Floyd had just passed off counterfeit money.Drugged to the hills . And worked for RAZA the white hate group. The black guy who murdered the ex black police officer got off as well. His killer had just passed off counterfeit money as well .

  10. She will never get a fair trial in Minnesota. Ben Crump is an ambulance chaser, a lot like Sharpton. He will get the family an enormous amount of money and a big chunk in his pocket and she will get thrown under the bus. So sad, she was doing her duty.

  11. Anyone notice how when she was arrested she didn’t accidentally get shot? That’s because she didn’t put herself in a position by resisting arrest and trying to flee the scene with a 3-4K weapon aka as a vehicle, endangering her life, the lives of passengers or people in the community! Race has ZERO to do with this death or George Floyd’s! The ONLY thing they had in common was two people who happened to be brown in color, with a history of warrants and priors decided it would be a good idea to take the law into their own hands and RESIST arrest! We have a court system that determines if you’re guilty or as charged or not! Quit resisting arrest and trying to flee and you won’t put yourself in a position to be dead! Police officers are also human beings who put their lives on the line every single day! Yes they’re trained but other reports indicated she was training at least one other officer that day and in the chaos that ensued she drew her gun instead of her taser ALL which was completely avoidable if the driver didn’t resist and attempt to flee! A life was lost! That’s difficult to digest but a police officers life has also been forever impacted as well! NOBODY wins when you choose not to comply in a situation like this! Skin color is irrelevant!

  12. DML said all white cops should quit, sadly I agree as it’s not worth the risk anymore. The ones with fences, security and military protection are hypocrites but these left morons ignore it. Corporations have lost their minds and I am truly trying to keep up with those companies and boycott them as every red blooded country living American should be doing. It’s not the poor oppressed blacks visiting bass pro shop etc, boycott is the only chance there is and sadly I doubt it will work. This racial bull is over the top and people are getting richer by pushing the agenda.
    The officer made a fatal mistake and she should have due process based on fair standard practice but this will never happen, because she is white she is guilty. Very sad our law enforcement, military, border patrol and rest cant do their jobs because of a moron and hoe spreading racial hate. Sick to see this in the country I grew up in and love.

  13. Like Tanya said the two young girls that planed to still the uber drivers car and ended up killing him will most likely get off scot free.
    This officer has a 26 year clean record and they will crucify her, not because she is guilty but because they are scared of BLM and Antifa.
