LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - An assistant county attorney who previously received a reprimand for deriding Korean-Americans as “foreigners” has been suspended without pay.

Multiple news sources report Jefferson County prosecutor Karl Price was suspended Thursday after a review of arraignments in April and May.

In arraignment court, Price was documented making fun of crime victims, women, immigrants, disabled people, and even African Americans, even though Price himself is black.

Jefferson County attorney Mike O’Connell recently reprimanded Price for a letter he sent to a Korean family concerning a contract dispute with Hwang’s Martial Arts Academy. On Tuesday, O’Connell had ordered that Price undergo sensitivity training.
