MINNEAPOLIS -- An arrest warrant is out for a former Minneapolis police
officer accused of kicking a man in the face and breaking his nose.

Authorities say 36-year-old Christopher Michael Reiter of Minneapolis was
responding to a domestic assault call last May when he allegedly kicked the man,
who was on his hands and knees.

According to a criminal complaint, the man suffered a broken nose and traumatic
brain injury.

Reiter has been fired from the department, though it is unclear whether his firing was connected to the incident.

In a statement, Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau said the incident
"takes away from the great strides we make daily to build public trust.''

St. Paul police investigated the incident.
