Over the weekend, disturbing video surfaced showing an altercation involving an officer and Packers running back A.J. Dillon during a recent soccer match at Lambeau Field.
Saturday’s exhibition contest was between Manchester United and FC Bayern Munich.
According to TMZ Sports, the Green Bay Police Department is beginning an internal review of the matter. A department spokesperson described the incident as “a miscommunication between the Officer and Mr. Dillon” and told TMZ Sports the Internal Affairs division has launched a review.
In the video, an officer approaches Dillon and grabs his shirt collar when he appears to be preparing for a Lambeau Leap. The officer then shoves Dillon as he motions for him to do his Lambeau Leap.
Dillon addressed the situation and said stadium security personnel provided him with permission to get on the field but that it apparently wasn’t communicated to the Green Bay Police officer:
The 24-year-old totaled 1,000 yards from scrimmage in 2021, running for 803 yards and catching 34 passes for 313 yards.
