MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A former Minneapolis police officer who kicked a man in the face while on duty will serve six months in the workhouse.

Christopher Reiter also was sentenced Tuesday to three years probation, stripped of his officer’s license and ordered to take anger management classes.

His felony conviction will be reduced to a misdemeanor if he successfully completes his sentence.

A jury in October found Reiter guilty of third-degree assault for kicking a man suspected of domestic assault in the face in 2016. Reiter was fired.

Reiter is due to report to the workhouse on Jan. 3.
