The City of Owasso will appeal an abritrator's decision to let an officer accused of being aggressive with a suspect back on the force.
FOX23 obtained video of the controversial 2011 arrest. It shows Bryan Spradlin being dragged into the jail and elbowed in the face by the officer.
Owasso police officer Mike Denton was fired last November because of the incident but last week an arbitrator re-instated him after reviewing the video. City councilors discussed the video at a meeting on Tuesday night.
