Former Green Bay Police Officer Being Investigated

Officer Accused Of Falsifying At Least 1 Arrest Report


A former Green Bay police officer could face criminal charges for falsifying an arrest report of an incident involving “use of force.”

Green Bay Police Chief Andrew Smith posted a statement on the department’s website Friday stating an internal investigation showed Michael Rahn’s account of an arrest didn’t match those of other officers and dash cam video.

Rahn was put on desk duty March 3, the same day representatives from the department met with Brown County District Attorney David Lasee. By March 22, Rahn was told to surrender his gun and badge, then put on administrative leave. Rahn resigned March 28.
