An Anoka County District Court jury decided that Sgt. David Clifford was not acting in self-defense when he punched Brian Vander Lee, 44, on June 16 at Tanners Station in Andover. Jurors found Clifford, 48, guilty of first-, third- and fifth-degree assault.
Hey at least he stood trial. Though there has been no word about his job status after this incident. He kept his job after the charges were filed, no word if the conviction changes that status.
